A man who packaged rice and sold to unsuspecting clients in the guise of an Apple iPhone has been busted and arrested.
The Ghanaian-Canadian national, Andrew Boateng Gyimah is currently cooling his heels in the custody of the police after the two victims filed a report to the police.
IPhones are among the highly sought-after phones in recent times because of their unique features, and this might have lured the man into the unruly act.
According to reports, the suspect was arrested in Toronto, Canada, after the two victims reported to the police that they have been defrauded.
The suspect was said to have posted an advert online which attracted one of the victims who agreed to meet with him Andrew Boateng Gyimah in an area of Islington Avenue.
He proceeded to give a box to the victim with claims that it contained the iPhone 6 only for the victim to open the box to behold grains of rice.
Someone else had earlier forwarded this to report that he had fallen victim to the same trick by Andrew Gyimah.
Andrew is now facing two counts of fraud under $5,000, two counts of false pretence under $5,000, and two counts of breaching a court order.
