Fraud

He has finally been arrested: Notorious fraudster has been caught in Accra mall

A hardcore fraudster was arrested at the Accra Mall, according to the Ghana Police Service. On Thursday, the announcement was made on the Police service's official Facebook page.

The young man, identified as Vincent Tawia, is twenty-two years old, according to news reports.

He's allegedly hiding out in an Accra mall, defrauding unsuspecting Ghanaians. According to the police, his method of operation is to act as though he is selling cellphones.

According to the paper, the suspect uses social media to promote himself as a cell phone dealer who sells gadgets for exorbitant prices ranging from a thousand to five thousand Ghana cedis.

He is also said to have a mobile money number from which he collects funds. He cannot be found, however, after paying the money to the specified number of his victims.

One of his victims alerted the authorities, and he was apprehended in his hideout. As a result, the perpetrator has been arrested in order to help the police in their inquiries.

A number of young people in Ghana have recently been arrested for their involvement in a variety of illegal activities yet they don't learn their lessons. Hardwork never kills. Make money in the right way and you'll not put yourself in unnecessary trouble.
