RSN™ Special Report: African Corruptions – Another University Co-oped By Scammers

Another Co-Opted Education Institution – Training Scammers In Ghana

Accra Institute of Technology – AIT


Yet another center for higher education in Ghana is found to be a breeding ground and base of operations for scammers.

AIT is accredited by the Ghana Ministry of Education The campus-based programs are offered at the undergraduate level in Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Civil Engineering, Computer Engineering, Computer Science, Information Technology and Business Administration.

Obviously, online cybercrimeCybercrime Cybercrime is a crime related to technology, computers, and the Internet. Typical cybercrime are performed by a computer against a computer, or by a hacker using software to attack computers or networks. is a part of that.

AIT boasts that it has an extensive electronic library (e-library) facilities including e-books, study materials and lessons, learning materials in audio and video format, computer science and engineering simulators and virtual laboratory resources among others.

But once again, when scammers are traced back to the facility that is giving them access to the Internet we find another University in West Africa.

The school seems to be aware and has dismissed a few students, but like most Universities scandal is their greatest enemy.

Here is one of the WhatsApp accounts used from within the University: +233503605459

As always, this information has been added to the [SCARS] Network and communicated to the U.S. FBI and EuropolEuropol The European Union Agency for Law Enforcement Cooperation, better known under the name Europol, formerly the European Police Office and Europol Drugs Unit, is the law enforcement agency of the European Union (EU) formed in 1998 to handle criminal intelligence and combat serious international organized crime and terrorism through cooperation between competent authorities of EU member states. The Agency has no executive powers, and its officials are not entitled to arrest suspects or act without prior approval from authorities in the member states. Based in The Hague, it comprised 1,065 staff as of 2016. WEBSITE LINK.

While there are great students at this school that are honest and hard working, it only takes a few scammers to completely corrupt the school, especially since it is so easy to recruit and train new scammers. We have to question is the school administration is also involved, or at least some faculty.

In 2016 10 students from AIT were arrested for Sakawa Scamming, but nothing since. [https://sites.eveyo.com/news/224515-cyber-crime-police-arrest-10-for-‘sakawa’.html] This just means they learned to keep it quiet.

We will continue to expose the institutions that develop, train, and deploy scammers throughout Africa. We do this so you will know the extent and the extant of this insidious plague.
