A Ghanaian Scammer has been arrested in Kenya for duping a woman through romance scam.
According to fillabase.com, the Kenyan authorities said the man duped her of $83,000 and he has been finally caught.
The Ghanaian scammer identified as Victor Anane met the victim through online dating site.
The police’s Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) said “The suspect… masquerades as a preacher, approaches innocent women looking for love and affection online, with promises of making their lives better before fraudulently obtaining money from them.”
According to the woman, she only became suspicious of Victor when she visited his house in the capital, Nairobi. “She was shocked to find paraphernalia associated with witchcraft and magical rituals. What was meant to be a romantic date turned ugly,” the DCI said, posting on Twitter bizarre photos of items allegedly linked to witchcraft recovered from Mr. Anane’s house during a raid”.
The authorities also recovered fake currency and materials used to print fake money. Security officials say some of the money given to the man was allegedly taken from Tala’s accounts.
The suspect, who has not commented on the allegations, is set to appear in court on charges of obtaining money by false pretenses.
