According to the facts from the security agencies, he lured the victims who wanted to travel outside the shores of Ghana to pay several thousands of dollars meant for the issuance of bank statements to support their visa applications.
It, however, turned out that all the bank statements Mr. George Asare issued were fake Bank accounts and statements.
A source at the security agency revealed that George after sensing danger has managed to take cover in Australia when he deceived an innocent Ghanaian-Australian Woman into falling in love with him and proposing marriage to her.
The lady, name (withheld) realising he has wife and children back in Ghana on top of his dubious and fraudulent dealings threw him out of her house.
“It is believed from intelligence that George Asare is hiding at a coded location in Australia with an expired Australian Visa. Our office have tried several times to reach him but to no avail,” the Security source disclosed.
The INTERPOL and the CID are using this opportunity to entreat the Ghanaian community in Australia to be on the alert if they come across Mr George Asare.
Reports further indicated that some of the victims are collaborating with the Australia High Commission in Accra to smoke out Mr. George Asare from his hideout .
