BECE School Placement Scam in 2021/2022 – GES Issues Disclaimer
According to the Ghana Education Service, 2021/2022 school placement fraudsters and scammers have begun publishing bogus material in order to defraud unsuspecting members of the public.
The Ghana Education Service cautioned the public in a Facebook post to reject a bogus statement that was circulating. Parents and interested parties are being asked to pay for their children to be put in certain schools of their choosing. While it distanced itself from the fraud, it urged parents to exercise caution and refrain from paying money to anybody who claims to enroll their children in a certain school.
School placement fraudsters and scammers have taken over social media with fake postings in the year 2021/2022.
Several of these posts are included here.
“If you want a specific school for your ward’s placement, please contact 0599203992.” This is a hoax, and anyone who continues on his or her unlawful quest to change schools will not only be duped, but will also be jailed with those who commit the real deed.
Another scam message going round reads…
School placement is ongoing internally.
If you know your results wasn’t good but you want a good school for yourself or your kid,
Chat me now before the placement is released.
Only those who want schools in
Should chat me.
If you are not serious for business, don’t chat me.
This is also a scam and should be avoided.
