Ghana busts fake currency ring with over $5 million

The National Security has busted a-13-member gang involved in the printing and distribution of fake currency notes to unsuspecting victims, mostly foreign nationals.

The gang, led by one Yassei Alia, a 45-year-old Syrian resident in East Legon, were rounded up in a warehouse, near the KLM offices within the Kotoka International Airport, on Monday.

Freshly printed $10,000 bundles of fake $100 notes concealed in two large metal trunks and a suitcase were retrieved from the warehouse.
