Suspected fraudsters allegedly operating money ?doubling? shrines in Lento Village, Life Camp, have duped the wife of a notable politician (names withheld) of $18,000.

A police source told our reporter that crime rate in the area has been high, especially this festive season and that many people have been taken to different shrines ostensibly to have their money ?doubled?.



According to the police source, residents of Lento village and Lento Aluminum have reported severally to the police division how victims were taken to various shrines in the village and robbed of their money and other belongings.

?Recently, the wife of a notable politician (names withheld) was taken to one of the shrines where she was duped of over $18,000. She initially gave the fraudsters $10,000, then went home and brought $8,000 to them. After handing the money over to them, they told her to come back in 30 minutes when they would have doubled the money to fill a ?Ghana must go bag?.

?By the time she came back, expecting to carry the bag of money that was promised her, the miscreants had already abandoned the place. It then dawned on her that she had been duped of her money,? he said.

The source also said: ?Even when the woman and her family reported the matter to the police, she seemed still convinced that she had genuine business with the fraudsters as she was only talking of the bag of money instead of telling us what exactly happened.?

The source, however noted that the police have been having a tough time trying to arrest the suspected fraudsters.

Residents of Life Camp have also lamented over alleged robbery attacks on them especially at Lento village. They alleged that armed robbersand fraudsters lay siege for unsuspecting residents around the village and dispossess them of money and valuables.

One of the victims told our reporter that the police were not doing anything reasonable to curtail the level of armed robbery in the area.

He said recently, his car broke down and before he could come back with a mechanic to fix it, it had been vandalized and the people around told him that the boys that did it were dangerous as they used charms and machetes on their victims.

When contacted on phone, the Life Camp Divisional Police Officer, Chief Superintendent Maman Joseph, is yet to comment on the report.
