GIS Sounds Recruitment Fraud Alert

Comptroller-General, GIS, Kwame Asuah Takyi

The Ghana Immigration Service (GIS) has pressed a recruitment scandal alarm and advised applicants who went through the recent screening and aptitude test as part of this year’s exercise to be wary of fraudsters.

While congratulating applicants who qualified during the body and documents verification exercise and proceeded to the aptitude segment, the GIS in a statement authored by the Head of Public Affairs, Supt Michael Amoako-Atta stated that “all such applicants are therefore to ignore any message directing them to report to the Immigration Service Academy and Training School to begin training, including reports that the Service is issuing admission letters or conducting medical examination.’

The statement has advised applicants to be mindful of fraudsters on social media directing them to pay various sums of monies for special protocol placement into the GIS, and report all such persons to the police.

The recruitment process, the GIS assured the public, is fair and transparent, giving equal opportunity to all applicants to be considered for placement into the GIS.

The GIS recently organised the screening and documentation inspection segment of this year’s recruitment exercise after receiving online application from eligible applicants.

Those who qualified for the aptitude segment are those being targeted by online recruitment fraudsters.

The criminals have in some instances issued fake admission letters to gullible applicants and demanding various sums of money in the name of the GIS.

With this disclaimer their criminal project would suffer a major jolt.
