Fool's Gold Lifting the lid on Ghana's illusory pot of gold and exposing those duping gold speculators out of millions of dollars.

Gold is back. With global investments delivering little returns, the eyes of many investors have turned to the old favourite. But the new gold rush has come with a big rise in scams and confidence tricks. They now represent a major threat for companies and individuals and many of them take place in Africa.

'My kind of journalism' - Ghanaian journalist Anas Aremeya Anas explains his resolve to name, shame and jail those undermining the aspirations of his country by duping foreign investors Ghana is the second-largest producer of gold on the continent and is now home to a large network of gold fraudsters. Investors have lost millions at their hands.

In this investigation, we go undercover to lift the lid on this illusory pot of gold.
