Kasoa: Two Cameroonians Arrested For Printing Fake Currencies

Two Cameroonian Nationals have been arrested by the Central East Regional Police Command for operating a fake money printing syndicate in Kasoa. The two have since been remanded into police custody.

The two Cameroonians were arrested following a report by one Benjamin Agyemang, a Ghanaian citizen after his encounter with the duo.

According to police report, they promised Agyemang that, they will print GHC 100,000 fake currency notes for him at a fee of GHC 50.000 after his encounter with them on social media.

Sensing danger, he made a report to the police who trailed the suspects and arrested them at Opeikuma a suburb of Kasoa.

This machine imported from Togo has two chambers. The suspects place original currency notes in one chamber and some white papers cut to the size of original currency notes also in the other.

They lure their victims by showing them original notes in the first instance in order to get them to pay for the amount demanded by them.

They’d later wrap these black notes and ask their victims only to open them after 24 hours.

Obaatanpa News Mireku Nyampong in an interview with DCOP Okyere Kojo Boapea, Central East Regional Police Commander, confirmed that, the police retrieved these black 200 cedis notes which is up to the tune of GHC 64, 000.

The two William Mbenson and Mba Caleb both aged 37 were arraigned before the Kasoa Akweley magistrate court and remanded into police custody to reappear on 16TH February, 2022.

He cautioned the general public to be wary of such tricksters in order not to fall victim.
