Information has emerged of a 28-year-old Ghanaian staying in Tamale listed among the 30 most wanted online fraudsters in the United States.
Maxwell Atugba Abayeta, popularly known as Mawxell Peter, according to the United Stated Department of Justice, was indicted by the District Court of Tennessee with “conspiracy to commit wire fraud, money laundering, computer fraud and aggravated identity theft”.
The Victim Witness Protection Program of the United States District Court of Tennessee has thus blacklisted Maxwell Atuguba Abayeta as month the over 30 persons complicit in online dating scams – with victims mostly in the United States.
“The United States Attorney’s Office for the Western District of Tennessee is prosecuting numerous individuals in connection with an international fraud perpetrated, in part, through online dating websites. If you have sent or been asked to send money to or on behalf of the following, you may be a victim in this case,” excerpts of the statement read.
