Ghana Ports and Harbours Authority (GPHA) has warned the general public not to transact port business on mediums like olx.com, tonaton.com among others due to reported cases fraud brought to their notice.

Mr. Paul Ansah, Marketing and Public Relations Manager, Tema port, who made this call during a media briefing in Tema on Tuesday, said the GPHA did not transact business on any private online platform.

Mr. Ansah said the warning was as a result of complaints received from clients and investigations GPHA conducted.

He said information gathered showed that these individuals pasted pictures of very good brands of products like Toyota, VW among others on olx.com and tonaton.com and price them very cheap to attract buyers but later defraud them.

Mr Ansah said GPHA had officially received complaints from a lady, a gentleman and a journalist who had been defrauded to the tune of 6,500 Ghana cedis from this online trade by making payment through MTN Mobile money transfer to these individuals.

He said the criminals quickly broke communication with them when the payment hit the MTN Mobile money account.
