The Accra Central District Police Command is searching for one Richard Amoako, chief executive officer of Tua Kakraa Susu Company, for alleged fraud.
Mr Amoako is alleged to have defrauded several people, mostly market women, under the pretext of making them save their monies with the company – what is known in the local parlance as susu.
Amoako has allegedly recruited about ten sales representatives who go about collecting the monies from the traders.
He was declared wanted after one of his sales representatives was apprehended by the women who suspected they had been defrauded, and handed the staff over to the Accra Central police.
Confirming the story to DAILY GUIDE, DSP Owusu Sekyere, Accra central district crime officer, said the victims, numbering about five, brought in one Madam Mari-Gold Mensah, a sales representative of Tua Kakraa Susu Company, for defrauding them.
According to the complainants, Mari-Gold came to them three months ago at the Kantamanto market and introduced herself as a sales representative of the company.
According to the victims, Mari-Gold told them her company was running a promotion for market women and customers who wanted to buy items of their choices but did not have the money readily at hand.
The police officer said some of the women who claimed they needed television sets, cement, blocks, refrigerators and other items, started depositing various amounts of money to the susu company through Madam Mari-Gold.
After completing the payment, the victims said, Mari–Gold refused to deliver the items to them and that all efforts to get the company refund their monies proved futile.
The crime officer added that when Mari-Gold was interrogated by the police, she claimed that all the monies she collected were given to Mr Richard Amaoko, the CEO of the Tua Kakraa Susu Company.
“When I realized that some of my customers had finished paying for the items they requested, I immediately informed my boss about it but he did nothing about it.
She added that some of the clients had paid various sums of money totaling about GH˘3,000 to the company.
