Maurice Asola Fadola is known to be one of the most luscious online dating fraudsters in Ghana. He managed to dupe some British widowed pensioners of about 800,000 leaving them bankrupt.
He intelligently charmed vulnerable lonely women during his ‘Rom Con’ scam, sending flowers on their birthdays and bombarding them with flattering messages and poetry. In all, he is believed to have conned 19 British victims.
Per is fraud tactics, Fadola is reported to have posed as an Army General, claiming that he needed money for emergency medical services and some other things.
From his gains, he acquired a huge mansion and spent large until he was arrested. His arrest came when he applied for a UK visa which disclosed his true identity to the National Crime Agency.
The Police tracked down Fadola in his expensive mansion, arrested him and he was later sentenced to serve a 5 year jail term at the Nsawam Prison.
The Con man who is believed to be in his 40s has disappeared from the prison. Prison Officers say that Fadola did not escape from prison but was illegally released and they are calling on their boss, Matilda Baffour Awuah, to provide answers to the whereabouts of the fraudster.
So it looks like this man paid his way out of Ghana’s prison—we didn’t even know that was possible.
