Since yesterday, September 3, 2020, topping trends on social media is an award scheme by one Kwame Fordjour, who posed as a United Nations representative who was giving out awards to some prominent Ghanaians on
An award scheme that was dubbed the 7th Global Leadership Service to Humanity Awards was held to appreciate entertainers, politicians, business people, among others on the list.
It turned out that the organiser of the awards, Kwame Fordjour who holds himself a PhD, is a shady character who has no connections with the United Nations or Kofi Annan.
This has led to a lot of trolls on social media especially for the award-winning rapper, Sarkodie, and the other entertainers who were also awarded.
Other prominent Ghanaians including the Vice-Chancellor of the University of Ghana, Professor Ebenezer Oduro Owusu, have all been victims of Fordjour's 'scam.'
YEN.com.gh has a list of some top politicians who have been scammed with the 'fake' awards.
Below is the list of politicians who have been scammed by the award scheme.

2. Chairman Wontumi
The Ashanti Regional Chairman of the NPP, popularly known as Chairman Wontumi was not left out of this scam.

The National coordinator of government's One District One Factory was also scammed. She even appeared in the dailies for being given such an award.
In other news, a video of the trending fake Kofi Annan-UN Award ceremony that many top Ghanaian celebrities and icons fell prey to, has surfaced.
The footage sighted by YEN.com.gh on the official Facebook page of OMGVoice was an advertisement by the young man who paraded himself as a representative of the United Nations (UN).
As it turned out, checks made by some internet users have indicated that the award scheme is not credible and that the Ghanaian claiming to be coming from the UN and representing the international body was actually a fraud.
