<![CDATA[Ghana Dating Scam - Ghana`s 1st Anti Fraud Website! - Scam Blog]]>Wed, 18 Oct 2017 15:00:19 -0700Weebly<![CDATA[Four gold scammers nabbed]]>Tue, 16 Aug 2016 15:29:42 GMThttp://ghanadatingscam.ghana-net.net/1/post/2016/08/four-gold-scammers-nabbed.htmlThe Accra Regional police have apprehended four men for allegedly defrauding a white man of an amount of GHC1.3 million ($325,000) under the pretext of sell­ing him some gold bars.

The suspects are Mark Kojo Conry aka Alhassan Mark Conry, aged 42; Richard Obeng Osei aka Opuni, a 38-year-old con­sultant; Kofi Amehoun aka Ali Abu, 34, small scale miner and Aikins Ameho, 40, computer technician.
Two others - Emmanuel Kwesi Dotse and Samuel Kofi Grant Kontoh - pur­ported accomplices of the suspects, are at large and are being hunted by the police.

The four, according to police reports, after collect­ing the said money pre­sented to the victim 13 pieces of some coated metallic bars concealed in a box as the gold and bolted.

They were apprehend­ed when they resurfaced and used a different tele­phone number to attempt to defraud the victim again.

Briefing the media, the Accra Regional Police Commander, ACP Timothy Yoosa Bonga, said the suspects, in June this year, together with two others (currently at large), were introduced to the victim by one Dawti (based in Dubai) as small scale miners.

Dotse, Grant Kontoh together with Conry, engaged the victim in a series of conversations on phone and further con­vinced him that they had gold for sale.

The victim who was in Dubai, came to Ghana with intent to purchase fine gold.

ACP Yoosa Bonga said on arrival on June 28, 2016, the victim was met by Dotse and Grant Kontoh at the airport after which they accompanied him to meet Conry at Ataltec Invest­ment Ghana Limited - a registered company deal­ing in gold at East Legon in Accra to examine the said gold which was being sold.

After the examination was completed, the three suspects took the victim to his hotel room where an amount o£ $325,000 was paid in exchange for the gold which turned out to be plated metals.

The victim later tried reaching the suspects on their mobile phones but they were not answering and so he became suspi­cious and broke into one of the boxes to check the con­tent.

The coated metals were found in it and with disap­pointment, the victim trav­elled back to his country.

Days later, Mark Conry and Kofi Amehoun con­tacted the victim with a dif­ferent telephone number and told him that they had some gold to sell.

The complainant con­tacted the police and feigned interest based on directives.
He came to Ghana again on August 12, 2016 for the deal.

On arrival, he met Conry, Obeng Osei, Ame­houn and Aikins Ameho at his hotel.
They negotiated the price of the gold and all agreed to proceed to Atal­tec Investment Ghana Lim­ited at East Legon (the same location where the previous examination was done) to conduct another examination on the sup­posed gold, which was priced ?1.6 million ($400,000).

The four men were arrested and brought to the station for questioning.
Another box which was used in defrauding the complainant and two yel­lowish metallic substances which Richard Obeng Osei claimed to be genuine gold, were retrieved.

When data on their mobile phones were exam­ined in their presence, police discovered that they contained pictures they had sent to the com­plainant and other unsus­pecting victims, some of whom they had succeeded in duping.
Investigations are still ongoing.

<![CDATA[Ghanaian in US convicted of fraud in ‘Internet romance scheme’]]>Fri, 06 May 2016 19:56:12 GMThttp://ghanadatingscam.ghana-net.net/1/post/2016/05/ghanaian-in-us-convicted-of-fraud-in-internet-romance-scheme.htmlA federal jury this week convicted Evans Appiah, 27, on charges of wire and mail fraud, conspiracy and aggravated identify theft related to what authorities described as an “Internet romance scheme” with at least seven men and women. 

In a six-day trial at the U.S. District Court in Greenbelt, prosecutors said Appiah looked through online dating websites to initiate the relationships, including with victims in Wisconsin, California and Florida.

Once he had their trust, prosecutors said, Appiah would ask for money.
Appiah and his co-conspirators often pitched “false stories and promises to convince the victims to send them money,” according to a statement from the office of Maryland U.S. Attorney Rod J. Rosenstein, which has prosecuted a series of similar cases. 

Four victims testified at trial, including a recently divorced high school guidance counselor. 

She paid Appiah $160,000, prosecutors said, for what he told her were emergency travel and health situations. Appiah had told the woman he was in love with her and would help raise her children, prosecutors said. 

Appiah created 10 bank accounts to receive the funds, authorities said, and in some cases used the money to make purchases that he then shipped to others outside the United States. 

In one instance, prosecutors said, Appiah used the name and other identity information of a victim as he deposited the victim’s cashier’s check into his own bank account. 

The scheme Appiah ran lasted from December 2013 to June 2015. Appiah’s attorney, Michael Rothman, declined to comment Thursday because his client faces sentencing in August. Appiah was taken into custody after the verdict on Wednesday and faces up to 20 years in prison on some of the charges.

<![CDATA[2 Nigerians dupe German woman GHC2.7m]]>Sat, 23 Jan 2016 10:00:10 GMThttp://ghanadatingscam.ghana-net.net/1/post/2016/01/2-nigerians-dupe-german-woman-ghc27m.htmlSource: Daily Guide Ghana - Two Nigerians, who allegedly defrauded a German female engineer to the tune of £260,000 and $350,000 (GHC2.7 million) under the pretext of supplying her with gold, have been arraigned before court for fraud.
The accused persons, Mark Adigun Latif alias Nana Adjei and Toefeek Ajisafe Oluwashola alias Benjamin Osei, were put in an Accra Circuit Court, presided over by Afi Agbaney Kudamor and charged with conspiracy to commit crime. They pleaded not guilty.

They have been granted bail in the sum of GHC30,000 with two sureties while the case has been adjourned to January 27, 2016.

The facts of the case as presented by the prosecutor, ASP AA Yirenkyi, are that the complainant is Walfraus Wiscentan, an engineer by profession, while the accused persons are Nigerians who have assumed Ghanaian names.

He said in August 2011, the engineer met a man on the internet by name Chris Walters, who is currently at large, and the said Walters claimed he was from Nottingham and was into gold business in Ghana.

According to ASP Yirenkyi, Walfraus Wiscentan arrived in Ghana at the invitation of the accused persons and was picked by an unknown person to GS Plaza; and that two hours later another Nigerian – at large – called lawyer Evans Agyemang, went to the hotel and purported to complete some processes for the sale of gold and then informed her that the suspect (Walters) had been arrested in a gold deal.

The prosecutor told the court that the said Agyemang had told the complainant that they needed £375,000 to get him (Walters) out of court and to give a portion of the money to the Minerals Commission.

ASP Yirenkyi indicated that the following day Agyemang went to the lady engineer with a document which he claimed was an agreement and then took Walfraus Wiscentan to the office of Latif and said he (Latif) was a gold dealer.
.

The police officer said Latif took out some supposed gold from a box and claimed it was worth the £375,000 they were asking for and promised to give it to her if she paid for it.

The police officer said on the third day Oluwashola went to the lady and posed as a lawyer who had been assigned by the said Walters to take care of her stay in Ghana and added that on the eighth day Oluwashola went with a certain lady who they claimed was a banker, to the complainant.

Furthermore, the prosecutor stated that the two took Madam Walfraus Wiscentan to a bank and made her use her passport to sign other documents and they made her open an account and claimed it would secure the freedom of Walters.

In addition, ASP Yirenkyi said Oluwashola took the engineer to a room and showed her $125,000 notes with serial numbers, which were jotted down and the lady was told that if Walters was released he would send her gold and some money in Germany.

The prosecutor said Oluwashola and Agyemang later sent an email to the complainant giving her account numbers at Ecobank and Guarantee Trust Bank and lured her into paying various sums of money into them.

The prosecutor stated that on September 12, 2011 the syndicate sent her a letter claiming it came from the Ministry of Transport, indicating that an amount of $25 million had been awarded to Chris Walters, who managed to convince her to pay an additional 15,000.

He said having realized she had been defrauded, the complainant made a report to the police, leading to the arrest of the two men while the others went underground.

The prosecutor said the case was still under investigation.

<![CDATA[Three defrauds Canadian MP over gold scam]]>Tue, 22 Dec 2015 00:03:56 GMThttp://ghanadatingscam.ghana-net.net/1/post/2015/12/three-defrauds-canadian-mp-over-gold-scam.htmlThree persons who allegedly defrauded a Canadian Member of Parliament and others of 727,500 dollars over a gold scam have appeared before an Accra Circuit Court.

The three, Kwame Amponsah, Isaac Ohene Agyekum, both of whom are Ghanaians and Iddrisu Fatau, a Nigerian, have denied the charge of defrauding by false pretences.
The Court presided over by Ms Eva Bannerman Williams, admitted them to bail but ordered them to deposit 150,000 cedis as part of the bail condition.

They are expected to reappear on December 21.

Prosecuting Chief Superintendent of Police Mr Duuti Tuaruka said the victims (names withheld) are French Canadians from Quebec.

According to the Prosecution, one of the victims was a sitting Member of Parliament in Canada.

The Prosecution said the victims were approached by a Cameroonian resident in France about a partnership deal in Africa.

Chief Supt. Tuaruka said the victims expressed interest and they were introduced to Kwame Amponsah in May this year.

Prosecution said Amponsah who claimed to be the Director of Bar Purity Ghana Limited and his accomplices showed the victims two gold bars which were proven to be of good quality.

Accused subsequently collected the victim monies, totaling $727,500.00 but failed to provide them with the gold.

Prosecution said efforts by the victims to collect their monies had proved futile, adding that, the accused persons have been harassing and threatening the victims.

Police investigations however led to the arrest of accused persons. (Source: GNA)

The reason I want you to help me get the money out from the africa banking firm is because I can not get it out myself.

My father said he made the deposit in senegal here becuase of the insecurity situation in my country then, and to ensure that the money will be safe and easier to re-locate to any country where I and whoever I choose as my partner may wish to establish business. According to my father, the banking firm has a secure and safe way by which they use in re-locating vault desposits to their customers anywhere in the world of which he signed a memorandum of understanding with them before he made the deposit. Again if you are not the person i am looking for, with due respect to you delete my email and don't respond to me
