The Ashanti Regional Command of the Ghana Police Service has cautioned the public to be wary of persons who purchase items with high currency dominations because they might be fake.

The caution follows an arrest of 16 persons in the region on May 24 and May 29 suspected to be dealing in fake Ghanaian currency. The suspects who were all females, between the ages of 17 and 40 years, were arrested at separate locations after reports were made against them and their activities.

A statement issued by the Regional Public Relations Department said 24,000 cedis made up of 100 and 200 Cedis denominations in fake currencies were retrieved from the suspects. It said the currencies are currently in Police custody and being kept as exhibits.

The statement urged Mobile money vendors to examine Monies they receive before confirming transfers. Operators of shopping marts and supermarkets are advised to acquire a currency detector where necessary, adding that to safeguard the security of businesses, victims of such crimes are advised to report promptly to the Police to initiate investigations into any dubious transaction.
