Woman defrauds man of GH¢960

Cape Coast, Feb. 8, GNA - A circuit court at Cape Coast on has fined Regina Dukah, 37, for defrauding a man of GH¢960. She pleaded guilty and was convicted on her plea but sentence was deferred to Tuesday February 27.

Chief Inspector Hope Azasoo told the court that Dukah collected GH¢960 from the victim in a promise to get him an apartment but failed to do so.

He said Dukah promised the victim that she was going to vacate from the apartment she was occupying very soon to a new place so she would give it to the victim.

After the victim had waited for months without hearing from Dukah, he approached her and she told him to wait but the victim asked for a refund because he was no longer interested in the apartment but Dukah was unable to provide the money and so he reported the case to the police.
