Scams and Cybercrime

Are you a victim of scams and other cybercrimes?

In Ghana, scams are widespread, and many both nationals and foreigners become victims of various forms of scams. These can be ‘love scams’ in which seemingly attractive ladies engage in a correspondence or contact on social media or skype with men, who are unaware about the real identity of the ‘ladies’ (often other men managing several identities at the same time) and end up transferring substantial amounts of money to the scammers. It can also be business proposals which look too good to be true – they always are! Unfortunately, the Embassy of Denmark is seeing many such case, and we are always ready to advise if Danish nationals are uncertain about the nature of a proposal whether love-related or business-related
