The Financial Intelligence Centre (FIC) has disclosed that both social and business persons within Hajia4Real’s circle are subjects of investigation.
Hajia4Real, a Ghanaian socialite, has been in the news following her extradition from the UK to the USA due to a $2 million romance scam she was involved in.
According to Sean Henry Osei, the Deputy Manager at FIC, all business and social friends of the socialite will be investigated by the FIC in collaboration with INTERPOL and the FBI.
He made this assertion when he appeared as a guest on Starr FM’s morning show, which was monitored by 1Family Radio.
“Apparently, Hajia wasn’t working alone; she was definitely working with a network. The evidence that you have access to will actually lead you to be able to find out who her greater network is, and obviously if you find her greater network, by instinct you will want to look at those people because then they become persons of interest,’’ he said.
Sean proceeded by asking the entire public to report any dubious wealth activities to the appropriate authorities to prevent the reoccurrence of such fraud cases.
“For beginners, you can report to the FIC. You can submit your report via mail or personally. Some of these guys we see—I know most of them have been attributed to fraud, but some are actually into legitimate business.’’
He concluded that although the country has yet to declare its stance on forex trade and crypto, he is entreating the concerned citizens to report any suspicious activities.
