A 28-year-old banker Fredrica Appiah has been charged with defrauding a businessman for GH274,000.
When she appeared before the Accra Circuit Court presided over by Susana Eduful, the accused, Frederica Appiah, entered a not guilty plea to the charge of defrauding by false pretense.
However, the accused has been given bail in the amount of G$300,000 with three sureties, and a subsequent court appearance is scheduled for February 8 of this year.
According to the prosecutor’s presentation of the case, Inspector Teye Okuffo, the complainant and the accused had been engaged in a business deal called the “Pay off” for a long time.
According to the prosecution, on July 6, 2022, Frederica approached the complainant and informed him of the investment promotion campaign her company was launching.
“The complainant, a businessman as well, made the decision to try it. Under the pretence of investing the money for the complainant, the accused person demanded and obtained GHC 274,000 from him “said Insp. Okuffo.
The accused individual then made a promise to provide the complainant with an investment document once the money had been invested, but failed to do so and fled.
He claimed that two weeks after the accused person stopped answering his calls and went into hiding, the complainant checked in with Frederica’s company on his own, but the business denied ever launching any promotional investment package.
He went on to say that when the complainant realised he had been duped, he filed a formal complaint with the Nima police, and the accused was apprehended by the Military Police of Burma Camp.
According to the prosecutor, the accused admitted in her caution statement that she had taken the complainant’s money to invest for him during the course of the investigation.
