The Ghanaian social media landscape has been awashed by matters concerning a fake award organised by a man known as Kwame Fordjour aka Dr UN.
The self-acclaimed PhD holder has fooled some celebrities and prominent individuals with a fake award described as 7th Global Leadership Service to Humanity Awards which was held on Friday, August 28th.
The supposed award linked to the UN and the late UN General Secretary, Kofi Annan was meant to appreciate entertainers, politicians, business tycoons and others who have distinguished themselves in their field of work.
However, according to reports, the man at the centre of the award scheme is a con man. He does not have any affiliation or link with the UN and per record, he has over 20 years of fraud history.
Funny enough, he has been able to scam high profile personalities including; Captain Smart, musician Sarkodie, Berla Mundi, the Vice-Chancellor of the University of Ghana, Professor Ebenezer Oduro Owusu among others.
Here is a list of the individuals who have been scammed;
