As part of efforts to curb the crime rate in the country, Vincent Tawiah, a 22year-old internet, and iPhone fraudster have been arrested at the Accra Mall for defrauding unsuspecting persons under the pretext of selling iPhones to them.

The arrest was made on Monday 10th May 2021 at the Accra Mall by a team of Police Officers drawn from the National Police Operations Department.

According to a report by the Ghana Police Service, the arrested iPhone Fraudster advertises his phones on the American photo and video sharing social networking, Instagram, and other social media platforms which get victims interested in buying.

The price for his advertised iPhones on social media ranges from One Thousand One Hundred Ghana Cedis (GH1,100.00) to Five Thousand Ghana Cedis (GH5,000.00), which is far less than the market prices of original iPhones.

When contacted by interested persons, he would ask them to send mobile money to the mobile phone account number 0551978205 registered in the name of Rhydale Addae.

Police used one of his victims as a bait to arrest him.

Other victims have since come forward to identify Vincent Tawiah as having defrauded them.

The Police are therefore asking persons who have also been defrauded by the suspect whose picture is attached to this story, to report to the National Operations Department at the Police Headquarters, Ring Road Accra or call 0238894764.

The Police Service renders an invaluable contribution to the state on daily basis, through the expeditious performance of its mandatory functions; providing security and ensuring the maintenance of law and order for a peaceful national elections and subsequent transition of government was an immediate past major contribution worth mentioning.
