A big time iPhone fraudster has been nabbed by the Ghana Police Service, the scammer who is said to have swindled a good number of people was arrested on 10th May, 2021.

The Ghana Police Service in a Facebook post gave a detailed account of how this fraudster goes about his dealings. Below is the Facebook post by the Ghana Police Service on their page.

Arrest of iPhone Fraudster – Victims to Report

The Police have arrested Vincent Tawiah, a 22year-old internet fraudster at Accra Mall for defrauding unsuspecting persons under the pretext of selling iPhones to them. He was arrested by officers of the National Police Operations Department on Monday 10th May, 2021.

Suspect’s modus is to advertise the iPhones on Instagram and other social media platforms for prices ranging from One Thousand One Hundred Ghana Cedis (GH1,100.00) to Five Thousand Ghana Cedis (GH5,000.00), less than the market prices of iPhones. When contacted by interested persons, he would ask them to send mobile money to the mobile phone account number 0551978205 registered in the name of Rhydale Addae.

Police used one of his victims as a bait to arrest him. Other victims have since come forward to identify Vincent Tawiah as having defrauded them. The Police are therefore asking persons who have also been defrauded by the suspect whose picture is attached to this story, to report to the National Operations Department at the Police Headquarters, Ring Road Accra or call 0238894764.
