But the victims say they have not seen any action after the promise hence the plea with President Mahama to step in.

Meanwhile, the Bank of Ghana (BoG) says the microfinance scam in the Volta Region is of 'grave concern' and that it is liaising with the police to bring the perpetrators to book.

According to the Bank of Ghana, the scam involves over 400 people. The BOG also stated that the microfinance companies are not licensed and regulated by the Bank.

The BOG stated that “the Bank is liaising with law enforcement agencies to trace and bring the perpetrators to book.”
