The term ‘sakawa’ as it is often coined refers to fraud boys who sit behind their mini computers demanding money from online and offline users through inappropriate means to enrich themselves
Recently, police caught a gang of fraudsters who planned to remit about GHC 326 million to themselves.
Despite their louche business, ‘sakawa’ or fraud boys, are not known to be quiet in communities.
They are often showy, loud and quite expensive in their tastes.
privilegeamoah.com sourced this from YEN.com.gh which captures a list of the favourite cars fraud boys love to show off with.
1. Toyota Corolla There are hundreds if not thousands of tweets from Ghanaians who understand and accept fraud boys love their Toyota Corolla.

2. Toyota Camry Still in the fold of Toyota, fraud boys do not look further than the Camry. It is car many struggle to differentiate from the Corolla.

It may be the affordability or just the comfort it brings but the Toyota Camry features high on the list fraud boys use their monies to get themselves.
3. Nissan Sonata The Nissan Sonata is also one of the favourites of the Sakawa crew. It is usually the case that those of them who feel that they are too easily identified with the Toyota models, tend to opt for the Sonata.
So now, the Fraud boys have moved to Sonata. Ah!

The Sonata model is an expensive car but it is not a big vehicle. It has come to represent the idea that these fraud boys have “made it”.
4. Chevrolet Cruze
Guys. Saw this chevy cruze and I want it. Retweet my fraud boy might be on your tl

And lastly, the Chevy Cruze. This car is probably the highest point fraud boys have gotten to at the moment. This is because apart from it being expensive, it is also considered as classy.
