Two persons, Moses Anku and Mark Kudomor who allegedly attempted to use fake currency notes to transfer money via mobile money appeared before the Accra Circuit Court presided over by Justice Aboagye Tandoh on Thursday.
The prosecutor, Chief Superintendent of police, Duuti Tuaruka told the court that Anku who is a trader and resides around the Spintex Road went to a vendor of the money transfer system in Tema under the guise of transferring an amount of GH¢800 which was later found out to be fake notes by the complainant.
He raised an alarm but Anku quickly snatched the money and bolted until he was pursued and arrested by some good Samaritans who took him to the Community 18 police station.
Kudomor later went to the police station and claimed that he had given the money to Anku to make the transaction on his behalf.
He was also arrested immediately and a search on them revealed a total of GH¢1,060 in GH¢20 denominations which was retrieved.
Moses Anku and Mark Kudomor pleaded not guilty to charges of conspiracy to commit crime and possession of fake currency notes.
The court granted them bail in the sum of GH¢10,000, with one surety each, and ordered them to report themselves to the Criminal Investigations Department of the Ghana police service on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.
