CLAIM: Any young boy seen in possession of iPhone 11 or 11 Pro will be considered a fraudster by the Ghana Police Service, says a viral message
FALSE: The Ghana Police Service says the account behind the message is fake. As such, stories emanating from it should be disregarded by the public.
Another wrong message has been attributed to the Ghana Police Service. On September 14, a viral message, posted with the heading Public Warning!!! under the account GHANA Police Service – GPS (@ghanapoliceserviceparody), has warned the public against the possession of iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro. According to the message, ‘any young boy’ seen in the possession of these phones will be considered a fraudster by the Police Service.
The newest additions to the iPhone family, iPhone 11 and 11 Pro, were unveiled on September 10 and will be released on September 20, 2019. They succeed 2018’s iPhone XR. iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro are said to have longer battery life, improved camera quality and a new range of colours.
The Ghana Police Service has informed the public that the account behind the viral message warning against the possession of Iphone 11 and 11 Pro by young boys is fake. The Police Service further said its Facebook and Twitter handles, @GhPoliceService are verified. Thus, stories emanating from other sources claiming to be from the Police Service are to be disregarded by the general public.
“The Ghana Police Service Facebook and twitter handles are verified with the handle, @GhPoliceService. Any other account purporting to be that of the Ghana Police Service is fake”Ghana Police Service’s tweet response.
The Ghana Police Service says the GHANA Police Service – GPS (@ghanapoliceserviceparody) account is a fake account. Therefore, the viral message warning against the possession of iPhone 11 and 11 Pro by “any young boy” from the Ghana Police Service is FALSE.
