DSP Owusu Dwomoh further urged the public to be cautious when transacting cash-related business with people.

“The public should be very cautious about these people. What they normally do is that they will come to you that they want to buy some items, and then they will put 50 notes on top and beneath a bundle. If you do not check properly, you will think all the notes they are you is genuine, but they aren’t.”
