GHANA – SMALL MIRACLES: Scammers Arrested In Ghana

26 ‘Yahoo’ Boys Including Nigerians Arrested In Ghana, Laptops And Phones Recovered

In a rare sign of prosecution in Ghana, 26 scammers / internet fraudsters popularly known as ‘Yahoo’ boys have been apprehended by the Madina Divisional Police Command on Friday in Ghana.

According to multiple online reports from Ghana, about twenty six of them including Nigerians are suspected to be engaged in cyber crime.

Since it is Ghana, details are scarce, but this was as a result of recent training by the United States Department of Justice given to Ghana’s prosecutors in a move to both professionalize them and reduce corruption.

As you can see though, these are not a part of any of the larger syndicates. These are independent low level scammers.

    I believe I was scammed of doing reshipping scam. There were several laptops and phones involved. The mans name that was being used is Phil Wilson and he’s on Facebook using one of my profile pictures. He also has a gmail account using Philph Willison. This went on for two years and it was also romance induced. This person was very slick. He needs to be caught. He would have me ship these items to a shipping agency in Accra. He would send me the shipping Fedex labels. There had been times of mens clothing and many pairs of tennis shoes being involved in these shippings. Please find him before he breaks someone else’s heart.

        There are over 100,000 active scammers in Africa. Report the scammer, then block them, and try to move on with your life. If enough information is ultimately reported then options become available. But you will only waste more money trying to track a scammer down.
