Though many have said that there are a lot of criminals at the airport duping people of their hard earn money just because they are illiterate on how things work at the airport when traveling, a Ghanaian guy Identified as Yaw Antwi have made things clear with his experience during his during his trip to Dubai some few month back.
According to Yaw Antwi in a DM he sent to popular Ghanaian musicians cum political activists, Kwame A Plus, he had an opportunity to travel outside the country for the first time in his life.
He stated that, he heard a lot of issues goes on at the Airport concerning people who are traveling out of the county for the first time on the grounds that, the Immigration are hard on such people so he was very nervous and had no idea of how he will go by the said issues going on at the airport without putting himself in danger.
He then contacted a friend of his who have travelled back from Dubai last year and he advised him to find some Immigration personal who can lead him through the process without any issue.
He made agreement with him since he had traveled before and when he arrived at the airport on the day of traveling, the guy told him not to come near the check-in point to rise any issue for myself and according the Yaw, he thought the guy was helping him because it was his first day of traveling.
The guy then meet him somewhere at the airport ground and collected 300ghs and also $400 Dollars which he said he will show to the immigration and after that he will return it back to him because it was my pocket money.[but what was he thinking when the guy said he will bring it back after showing it to the immigration?]
According to Yaw, the guy did well to have made him go through all the process successfully with any stress but started telling him stories with the $400 dollars he need to return back to him till his flight arrive and that got him crying because that was all the money he had and it was his pocket money to used when he gets to Dubai.
The Guy after seeing how emotional Yaw has been called him when he went into the flight and told him as soon as He gets to Dubai they will mention his name and they will deliver the money to him because he have given it to the flight attendant.
According to Yaw, he thought it was true but no money was delivered to him and he had to sleeping outside bus station till his family send him extra money.
