The Ghana Armed Forces (GAF) has cautioned the public against giving patronage to fake advertisements and other falsified documents including social media posts purporting that the GAF has begun 2020/2021 recruitment and enlistment exercises.
According to a statement signed by Colonel E. Aggrey-Quashie, the Public Relations Director of GAF, the adverts are being put into the public domain by “unscrupulous persons using the names and pictures of senior officers to defraud the public.”
The GAF also indicated that it does not advertise on social media and does not engage middlemen in such exercises.
“Therefore, the public should take heed of the education and numerous reminders to desist from paying monies through ‘mobile money’ to these fraudsters who claim to be recruitment agents of GAF,” the statement read.
The GAF also assured that “in conjunction with other Security Services such unscrupulous persons engaged in the fraudulent acts are continuously being tracked down and those arrested being dealt with severely according to the law.”
The GAF, however, advised that persons interested in joining the Force should “stick to the certified and official channels that GAF uses in announcing recruitment and enlistment exercises.”
“It is also strongly advised that interested applicants verify with GAF on any such recruitment/enlistment exercise and to wait for the official publication in the recognised media houses and dailies – Daily Graphic and Ghanaian Times,” the statement added.
