WR: Woman Wanted By Police For Fleecing Pump Attendant With MoMo Payment

A young woman in her thirties drove through a gas station to refill her tank this morning at Arhinkofi a suburb of Ketan of the Sekondi-Takoradi Metropolis in the Western Region. She instructed the pump attendant to fill her tank to the brim while she processes the payment.

 

With the excitement of a good sale on an early Sunday morning, the pump attendant discharged the fuel into her tank. The pump attendant [male] was done within a few minutes and walked to the lady requesting payment.

 

The lady in the private car directed the pump attendant to hand out the MoMo account so she transfers the cost of the fuel which was valued at four hundred and twenty Ghana Cedis (GH420.00) to the company’s account. The pump attendant did just that but was didn’t have the phone in his possession to verify the payment.

 

The pump attendant asked the lady to hold on while he gets to check on the MoMo account and verify the payment. He left but returned to meet the absence of the lady in the private car.

 

He had just been fleeced of GH420.00 and risk losing his job if he doesn’t get to refund the amount into the company’s account. The pump attendant felt he’s been fooled and started cursing the lady.

 

But for his smartness, the vehicle number the lady drove to the gas station was recorded. He had a perfect mental registry of the license plate and fed the Motor Traffic and Transport Department of the Ghana Police Service to cause the arrest of the swindler[driver].

 

The vehicle’s registration number as recalled by the pump attendant is GR3669-17. The Police have entered this number into their wanted list and various wireless messages sent to checkpoints within the city of Sekondi-Takoradi, and across the Western Region.

 

It is expected that the police will arrest the woman soon. In the meantime, the pump attendant is awaiting a final word from his bosses about his work and the loss the station has suffered for the fraudulent activity.
