A Special Report Form 2015 | Updated: March 2021

Scammer Training Ground In Ghana

Our research has found that a significant percentage of Romance Scammers originate from the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology in Kumasi, Ghana

We think this is, in part, because for many this is the first time they have had full access to the internet.  While most or many of these scammers are using Internet Cafes, an examination of Fake Facebook profiles shows a huge number are from KNUST in Kumasi.

Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology is a University in Kumasi, Ghana. It is the second public university established in the country as well as the second-largest University in Ghana.
