It Is A Scam Platform; GRA Cautioned The Public On This Fake Online Auction of Vehicles Platform; Drops Names and Details.
The attention of the Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA) has been drawn to an online platform -www.locanto.com.gh purporting to carry out auction of vehicles for and on behalf of the Customs Division of GRA.
We wish to state categorically that the Division has not contracted any third party or platform to auction vehicles on its behalf. The platform – www.locanto.com.gh – has NOT been given authorisation by GRA to auction vehicles on its behalf.
We urge all persons who are desirous of purchasing items on auction from the Customs Division to take note of this information and not purchase vehicles from this website. We also assure them that we are investigating the unauthorized use of the Customs Division to auction goods and those found culpable will be sanctioned accordingly.
Online auction of vehicles and general goods were first piloted on Friday, October 21, 2022, via the E-Auction module on the Integrated Customs Management System (ICUMS) as part of the rollout of the ICUMS and it was introduced to make the auction process easier and more convenient.
Persons interested in participating in auction of vehicles and general goods from the Customs Division should kindly sign up on http://auction.icums.gov.gh.
The GRA can be reached by email on email@example.com, by WhatsApp on 0552 990 000 and 0200631664 for further information.
