A 33-year-old outsourced worker of Stanbic Bank Ghana has been declared wanted by the Ghana Police Service for allegedly defrauding scores of customers of the bank of more than GH¢900,000 (aprox, $210,000).

The suspect, Martha Amakye, who is said to be an outsourced worker from Noswall Management Service, a recruitment agency in Ghana, absconded after the Financial Crime Control Unit of the bank found out she was involved in some fraudulent transactions.

Amakye, a personal solution consultant or sales officer at the Tema Community One branch of Stanbic Bank, is said to have collected various sums of money from customers of the bank between 2015 and 2016 on the pretext of investing it in fixed deposits.

She is alleged to have promised the customers interest rate of between 18 and 20 per cent per month

According to sources, Amakye, without the consent of the management of the bank, contacted the victims and many other customers and lured them with the high interest rate on their investment.

At a point, the sources said, she allegedly paid what she claimed to be interest accrued from the fixed deposit investment to some of the initial investors but retained the principal amounts, with the explanation that the amount would be reinvested.


Amakye’s pictures have been posted on Stanbic Bank’s Facebook timeline, with a message that urged anyone with information on her whereabouts to call the police.
