The Ministry of Information and National Orientation yesterday warned the public against a group offering jobs and visas for Ghanaians to work in South Africa saying they were fraudsters.
The group is called “Live and Work in South Africa or LWSA,” according to a statement signed by Mr Kwamena Bartels, Minister for Information and National Orientation. “The authorities wish to bring to the attention of the public that investigations reveal a fraudulent scheme that may be termed a 419 racket,” it said.
According to the statement, on arrival in South Africa, tickets were found to be either fake, charged to stolen credit cards or issued through deceptive e-ticket schemes. “The public are duly warned to be wary of dealing with the said “Live and Work in South Africa or LWA” and scrutinise all such offers with caution.''
