It is quiet unfortunate that people are rather interested in making an ultimate exploit which is possibly very untimely. With view of this, many are the fraudsters disguised as genuine people who claim to have the ability to double up money for people.

Let’s look at this common scenario, in a genuine incident where dubious investors earn way too much than the income deposited, there is something called Ponzi scheme, this is where individuals are paid with the initial deposit of the early majority, the cycle goes till it sublimes gradually and dies. According to Investopedia, A Ponzi scheme is a fraudulent investing scam which generates returns for earlier investors with money taken from later investors.

This is similar to a pyramid scheme, in that both are based on using new investors’ funds to pay the earlier backers.  Looking at the nature of Ponzi scheme, though a scam and illegitimate it has some sort of authenticity since people do enjoy for some time till the actual facilitators decides to  end the game when they realize their aim is attained.

How much more a simple and normal ingrates who sits in their comfort zones, and predict over 100% increment of a very low deposit. They come up with fabulous identities which are supposedly names of international institutes, which cannot easily be reached when researched on.

They hire people to proclaim win to simply buy your attention and makes you fall for their manipulative words. This Ectypal Ponzi-scheme-like ways of handling the minds of people who are poised to gain more than they have worked for, end up gaining the attention of most people especially the least educated ones.

I feel so agitated when i see the adverts of this money fraudsters on the various television stations in the name of publicity. The only question I ask is; do we have any organization in Ghana that guides or supervise the kind of contents to be telecasted on the various set or there is free range of conduct?

“The National Media Commission (NMC) was established in 1993 through the National Media Commission Act – in pursuit of the provisions of Chapter 12 of Ghana’s 1992 Constitution – in order ‘to promote and ensure the freedom and independence of the media for mass communication and information’.

The NMC deals primarily with media content. It encourages responsible practice of the media and investigates, mediates and settles complaints made against or by the press or other mass media”.

As clearly stated above, it encourages responsible practices, on what basis can such contents be dim responsible. When people has instigated dubious ways and awkward means to deliberately extort money from people.

How long can we keep quiet on this? Surprisingly enough, these TV stations issues a discretion to inform the public of their station not being responsible for such publicity and if incase there are any unpleasant occurrence, they can’t be held responsible.

How then did the content land on their TV station, I believe in the course of advertisement, people just don’t advertise anything, they go through diverse procedure to receive accreditation before the media houses can accept to broadcast their product.

Banks and financial agencies who want to advertise their financial packages must at least receive consent from the required institution. This are rational deductions that must be given critical thought.

Now traditional religious practices which was earlier on kept from the light are now openly practiced, patronizing this same mischievous conducts and giving people the impression that truly they can make money without working for it.

The occult societies have now dominated most channels preaching what use to be diabolic. Let’s not always attribute these practices to time bound manifestation where we surely know something can be done about it

Must we fold our hands and watch this people dupe others. We can actually do something about this societal anomaly. I humbly call on other media houses to help channel this goal to the appropriate quarters for effective redress.

There may be obscurities but it never too late for prompt relegation. I write with clear optimism that indeed the media superintendents for digital satellites such Multi TV have basic regularities that is supposed to monitor the contents these various media houses shows.

It is a great deal to make sure it is appropriately applied and sanctions are meted out to defaulters. Many incidents are popping up concerning youth who are doing inhuman things to gain money, which they might have been motivated by such adulterated contents.

Lets be poised to telecast content that will be of benefit to the public and not something that will make them feel insecure if they are not able to make ends meet, hence finding ways to quickly meet their goals, which will not solve problem but they will end up adding up to the nation’s dilemma.
