In a photo that was shared in relation to the story, it appears the fraudsters swapped the money with papers on the blind side of the victim.

He wrote: “Fraud Alert!!! A customer of mine received this among others in a Ghana must go bag for payment of GH₵500,000 for goods (Raw Cashew Nut) picked up from him and he was coming to pay it into his account.

"He said he was counting the money with them but is so bemused to really tell whether it was swapped with another bag or African magic made the money turn this way.

"Let us all be cautious.”
