The 38-year-old Nigerian has been forging signatures of Ghana’s Chief of Staff, Julius Debrah, Finance Minister, Seth Terkper and other top government officials, to defraud a foreign investor to the tune of $150,000 dollars.
Reports from Local media outlets, Dennis and his gang were exposed in June, this year, after they tried to withdraw a huge amount of money from the victim’s account.
According to the police, Dennis and his gang hacked into the Vietnamese investor’s account where they got to know about the challenges the victim was faced with. Dennis allegedly introduced himself to the investor, Le Van Khiem, as the secretary to the chief of staff, Julius Debrah, claiming that he can use the high office to help him.
Documents supposedly signed by the Chief of Staff and the Finance Minister were shown to the investor who got convinced , thereby, giving out his personal items, including his visa card and password to Dennis and his gang, so as to withdraw $100,000 dollars from his account to speed up the process.
The unusual withdrawal attracted the banker’s suspicion to raise query on the account and block it. It was during the withdrawal of the last portion of the money transfer that Dennis was arrested.
He has now confessed to the crime and mentioned one Robert Amuzu as an accomplice.
