Fake Naval Officer Arrested For Allege Fraud


A fake Naval Officer who attempted to dupe a forex bureau operator has been arrested by the Takoradi Police Command.
The suspect who has been identified as Emmanuel Yankey,  23 years and a civilian employee of Naval Base Sekondi  went to a forex bureau  in Takoradi with John Kommey,  aged 17years to transact business. On reaching the shop, Emmanuel Yankey who had earlier identity himself as a Naval Officer at Sekondi to the forex bureau operator told him he was there to exchange 2000USD.
He sat down with the 17year old boy and told the operator that they were waiting for a third person. Whilst there, he asked the bureau operator to give him 700 Ghana Cedis to send to a friend so that after the exchange he will give back the money to him.
At the close of business, the third person did not show up. The bureau operator asked the Emmanuel to give him the dollar equivalent for 700Ghana Cedis but he could not produce the money. When his bag was searched, plain papers in the size of dollar notes were found neatly packed. The two were arrested and sent to the Market Circle Police Station . During interrogation,  Emmanuel confessed to Police that he is a civilian employee at Sekondi Naval Base.
The two suspects have been detained for further action.
