Ghanaian and 2 Nigerians Defrauds UAE Citizen of $60,000 in Fake Gold Deal

A sophisticated scam involving a Ghanaian and two Nigerians has recently come to light, defrauding a United Arab Emirates citizen, Farhad Omedi, of $60,000 in a fake gold deal. The elaborate scheme, which spanned international borders, saw Omedi lured to Accra, Ghana, under the promise of a lucrative gold transaction.

The Ghanaian accomplice, identified as Baffour Abraham, along with the two Nigerians, 39-year-old Sunday Olatunji and 51-year-old Israel Olawale Omoley, convinced Omedi to invest $60,000 in what they claimed was genuine gold. However, it soon became evident that the entire operation was a carefully orchestrated scam.

Thankfully, authorities swiftly intervened. The Dawhenya and Lakeside police managed to apprehend Olatunji and Omoley, but Abraham managed to evade capture and is currently at large. The case serves as a stark reminder of the dangers of falling victim to international fraud schemes.
