^^That's great news, but what does this mean:

Quote:
Items labeled as gingo seeds, vagina powder, wacaga seeds among others were retrieved from the scene and has been kept as exhibits.


I know I don't get out enough, but wtf? Shocked

Seems to me that this is a local con man that they now show off as the 419scammer. Him being western (Dutch) has nothing to do with the scam, but it's a nice angle to get it in the papers and the public opinion.

I have a bit of difficulty believing this. Although it's good when any scammer is arrested, it looks as if this was also an attempt to pretend there is no local problem, it's just those white foreigners.

Also look at the indignant subscript, 'a Dutchman', from the epic center of 419 fraud, bringing crime and bad reputation to Ghana Laughing

ETA: this is really funny stuff:

He emphasised however that he was not linking all the 419 cases to Schryen but suspects he would be involved in most of the cases.


Well that takes care of the Ghanaian 419 scams. I bet his brother lives in Lagos, about time he gets nailed too Laughing

Yep and then this "The Dutch man has been living in Ghana for the past 20 years and is married to a Ghanaian. " Wouldn't he be a Ghanaian by now ?
