12 scammers in Ghana who smartly shipped bags of cement as gold to their clients have been busted according to a revelation by the Defence Intelligence Unit of the Ghana Armed Forces.
In a report by MyNewsGh, these 12 scammers allegedly shipped bags of cement to their victims outside Ghana as gold.

“They take you to the office, then you make the transfers into their account and then you fly back to wherever you came from…and all their victims have been foreigners not Ghanaians…so you go back home expecting your shipment to arrive…. when it arrives, you open and you realise it’s only cement bags”, according to the Deputy Director of Public Affairs of the Ghana Armed Forces Andy La-Anyane.
