The Executive Director of Economic and Organised Crime Office (EOCO), Mr K. K. Amoah has revealed that his outfit has saved more than 9,000 customers from losing their investments with three financial institutions.
According to EOCO, the three companies are; Wealth Drive Ghana Limited, Global Coin Help Limited and TCL Market Ghana Limited.
They promised to give clients interest rates of between 10% and 30% on their deposits.
For operating without licences, the three companies have been arraigned for prosecution.
In an interview with the Daily Graphic newspaper, Mr K. K. Amoah, said the affected customers had, at the instance of EOCO, agreed to a payment schedule with the companies to have their deposits refunded to them.
He opined that, the agreed payment plan with customers is being followed strictly.
Mr Amoah also noted that since 2018, EOCO had investigated financial crimes, money laundering, among other infractions, and submitted more than 20 dockets on them to the A-G’s Department for review and the next line of action, which could include prosecution.
Furthermore, he said, the office was still working on the dockets of 25 other cases and expressed the hope that they would be submitted to the A-G’s Department by the middle of March.
“Already, we have done some work on the Opuni case, which is currently in court; that of the Operational Business Suite (OBS) of the Social Security and National Insurance Trust (SSNIT) and the latest one involving Sedinam Tamakloe Attionu, a former boss of the Microfinance and Small Loans Centre (MASLOC),” he said.
