involvement in $2.1m Romance fraud in the United States of America
The suspect who faces up to 20 years in prison if convicted is reported
to have in concert with others scammed over 30 victims identified so
far as 27 sent more than $823,000 to him mainly by wiring money to his
bank accounts. He transferred more than $454,000 to co-conspirators in

Sarpong who flaunts dollar bills at the least opportunity was on
Wednesday charged with a single count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud
and will have a first court appearance on Wednesday afternoon.
Sarpong and his co-conspirators, several of whom live in Ghana, ran the scheme starting in January 2016 until this week.
They set up phony profiles on various online dating sites posing as
U.S. military personnel and would pretend to forge romantic
relationships with their victims, authorities said.
In one of the scenarios, the scammers would then ask for money to ship
gold bars they had recovered while stationed in Syria back to the United
States, authorities said.
There were no gold bars and the scammers kept the money, authorities said.
The victims, who met the scammers via sites including Plenty of Fish,
Ourtime.com and Match.com, communicated with the scammers via phone and
The criminal complaint references a victim who committed suicide after wiring $93,710.
The scammer in this case told her he was a soldier serving in Syria and

What followed was an elaborate story about how she could help get the
gold to the U.S. by paying various fees and taxes. She was told her
money would be returned once the gold arrived.

talking out of experience but you, you heard. Ghanaians are nursing such
hatred towards Nigerians in your neighborhood”.

don’t share what you hear…you confirm it first. FYI no foreigner has
been attacked in Nigeria”.

of these hypocrites”.

for their toughest test yet against a free-scoring South African side
who were on rampage with a 9-0 drubbing of Zimbabwe on Tuesday, August

fixture of the African 2020 Olympic Games qualifying competition.

Incidentally, all the players who scored in that match -South Africa’s
Taine Paton and Ntuli Nqobile, Ghana’s Michael Baiden and Ernest Opoku –
are expected to feature in today’s must-win clash.
With just one slot up for grabs, today’s game is a win-or-bust affair
for either side, especially as group leaders Egypt are also in a good
position to qualify for next year’s summer Olympics.

replaced Emmanuel Ankomah, but in our opening match against Kenya,
Francis was carried off the pitch after he was hit by a stick, while
Michael Baiden was also carried off for thigh injury,” bemoaned the
“The team is well settled now and getting used to the bouncy turf, and
against South Africa, we will not only control our balls, but also carry
the game to them and manage each quarter as it comes.”

of the competition when they clash, with table-topping Egypt tipped to
put fourth-placed Namibia to the sword.

hard, try to get to full fitness and, if I’m here, go for it.”

that sort of thing makes you want to work hard,” he said.
