…A Cabinet Minister is his victim
The police have arrested a wanted charlatan who has a mean-streak that includes impersonating as a medical doctor, and rouging as a blackmail Romeo.
Faith Mensah Tekpor has been described as a confidence trickster who has variously posed as Dr. Jeff Alvin Addow, Dr. Alvin Owusu, Dr. Alvin Annan, Dr. Fiifi Owusu, Dr. Collins Amoah and Dr. Alvin Mensah to win the confidence of his victims, mainly women.
The Gazette has learnt that his victims include a high profile cabinet minister in the Akufo-Addo government.
The fake doctor, according to the police, would carefully carry out a modus operandi that include alluring and bedding rich girls, before defrauding them of cash.
A statement released by the Police Headquarters in Accra also revealed Mr. Tekpor’s use of marriage proposals as bait to crawl into the panties of his victims before blackmailing them into parting with huge sums of money.
Signed by the Director of Public Affairs, DSP Sheilla Kessie Abayie-Buckman, the statement said the modus operandi include recording sexual bouts with his victims and then later demanding for money from same victims.
Once the victim refuses to give out the money, the suspect would then threaten to release the sex videos to the public.
An Akufo-Addo minister is said to have been ripped off some Ghc10,000, before she came to her senses. She has however kept the ordeal to herself because of the pornography involved.
Police intelligence shows that there are other victims of this fake “Dr. Jeff Alvin Addow, Dr. Alvin Owusu, Dr. Alvin Annan, Dr. Fiifi Owusu, Dr. Collins Amoah and Dr. Alvin Mensah,” who have been blackmailed into silence by this confidence trickster, whose real name is Faith Mensah Tekpor.
“These victims are therefore encouraged to report their cases to the nearest Police Station or call the short code 18555 (MTN and Vodafone) or 0244682740 or 020777001 to report their cases,” the statement said.
According to the police, Faith Mensah Tekpor is not a first time offender and that he had, in the past, jumped court bail and was listed as a wanted person on the authority of a bench warrant until his recent arrest.
The police say they have since charged him with defrauding by impersonating and put him before court where he is facing trial.
It said Mr. Tekpor is also under investigation for related crimes that he is suspected to have committed.
“The public is also advised to be alert when dealing with strangers who promise ‘paradise’ and to report suspicious activities and persons to (the) police,” the statement said.
