The Management of Barclays Bank Ghana is rejoicing over the arrest of a fraudster who duped a school boy at the Osu branch of the bank.

Reports had it that the suspect was attempting to dupe another person in another bank when one of the customers recognised him from an earlier CCTV footage of his deeds which had gone viral on social media. The fraudster was caught earlier this year on camera, swindling a JHS student who had been sent to make deposits at one of the Osu branches of Barclays Bank. He duped the victim of GHS3700 at the time.

But he has been arrested by the Police.

“We are glad the alleged fraudster has been apprehended by the police. We are very excited and we will continue to cooperate with the police in their investigations… We will continue to give them all the support they need until the case is brought to an end,” said the Communications Manager of Barclays Ghana, Cyril Nai.

Cyril Nai assured that the bank would be committed to protecting customers’ funds and avert a recurrence of the incident. “We are continuing with our education with our customers to make sure that the bank is safe so that they are also secure,” Cyril Nai told Citi News.

“We will continue to work to guarantee the safety of our customers and their funds whilst we continue to advise our customers as well on how they can bank safely and ensure that some of these things can be prevented.” He, however, revealed that the Bank could not be held liable to refund the money to the victim.

“We are not liable at this point because the money was not paid to a staff member; it went to a third party who has nothing to do with the bank,” he observed. He further intimated, “In such situation, we can’t pay because how do you prove that the person who took the money from the customer, there wasn’t any connivance?”

The bank said it would continue to educate its clients on safety practices.
