The 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.

 
 
I was contacted by a woman in Ghana who goes by the name Grace Andoh. She sent me photos of herself and showed me videos which I have since found on the internet. 

 
 
A 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.

Good Morning Uncle Richard,

Uncle,I want you to please to consider my condition here and help me out transfer my inheritance fund into your direct account in your country so that I can relocate to your country where I can be safe again to stay with you and continue with my education again because I am not safe staying here in this country since I did not have any parent again and because of my present condition which I am not safe because those people who killed my parent and my only brother is chasing after me to kill me as they killed my parent because they want to take away everything my father left for me.

Please I want to inform you to know that this transaction which I have introduced to you is of mutual benefit to the both of us as well as the benefit of the less privileged in our societies. Though I contacted you through this medium being the only means I have to meet people abroad because of the urgent need of moving this fund abroad, and I plead you to consider my situation here and come to an urgent assistance because I am really facing a total rejection here and I do not have any relative here and in your country, it's only by the grace of God that I was able to get your contact after several fasting and praying and it seems that my sorrow increases as days goes by here that is why I desperately need your urgent help to transfer this fund into a foreign account and leave this country for a better life over there in your country.

But I must tell you my dear that I really need your urgent assistance only if you can be honest and sincere to help me out in this transaction because I can not afford to lose this my only fund which I want to invest with you in your country!
