Greetings from Accra! After a 10-hour flight across the Atlantic from JFK airport to Kotoka International Airport in Accra, I was greeted lasted Thursday by my host, Awo Aidam Amenyah, head of Child Online Africa.

After a security briefing with the excellent staff at the U.S. Embassy on Friday, Awo and I headed to the studios of Joy News for an interview with Blessed Sogah, host of "The Pulse," an afternoon news program. You can watch the interview on YouTube:

There are some memos that no city finance director wants to write. That's the position that Jeff Rogers, Finance Director for the City and Borough of Juneau (CBJ), found himself in recently. The opening paragraph of his memo (see below) explains why:

On December 7, 2022, I was alerted by the Juneau School District that they were the victim of a fraudulent financial scheme. They reported that an individual claiming to be one of JSD’s vendors requested banking information for ACH payments to be changed. JSD did not detect the fraud at this time. Resulting from the change in banking information, two payments were made to the fraudulent actor via ACH:
 • $93,477.17 on October 7, 2022
 • $175,600.23 on November 4, 2022
