A son of the former Minister for Lands and Natural Resources, and former Member of Parliament for Tamale Central, Inusah Fuseini, has been found guilty of money laundering and wire fraud in the United States of America, the herald newspaper has reported.
31-year- old Abdul Inusah was arrested for his role in a Huntington-based scheme that defrauded individuals in multiple states through the use of false online personas.
A statement from the United States Department of Justice explained that evidence at trial revealed that “Inusah was part of a conspiracy that targeted victims using false personas via email, text messaging, and online dating and social media websites.
From at least January 2018 through at least December 2019, the scheme sought to induce victims into believing they were in a romantic relationship, friendship, or business relationship with various false personas.
The victims were persuaded to send money for a variety of false and fraudulent reasons for the benefit of the false personas.”
Abdul Inusah has been scheduled to be sentenced on November 21, 2022 and will face a maximum penalty of 50 years in prison.
