According to sources, the Awutu Bawjiase District Police Command has arrested a self-styled pastor for allegedly defrauding some Seventh Day Adventist (SDA) Church members in the district.
The suspect, who identified himself as Pastor James, allegedly promised his unsuspecting victims at Yamoah Nkwanta jobs in shipping companies in the United States of America (USA).
Some victims said he told them his brother works at Alaska Tanker Company in the USA, where they need workers.
As a result of that, he asked them to make payments to facilitate the process of gaining employment and commencing work. After giving him over GHS 10,000, they were issued employment letters which requested them to report to work on February 17, 2023.
Later, they found out that the letters turned out to be fake.
According to the address of the appointment letter they received, the company is reported to be located in Tema, Accra.
