Jeffrey Kofi Appiah, a 38-year-old Ghanaian based in the UK, was on Tuesday arrested by the Airport Police for using fake credit cards to defraud a hotel in Accra on two different occasions.

Appiah was preparing to leave the country when he was apprehended.

Police sources at the Airport Police Station told the Ghana News Agency that in July last year Appiah arrived in the country and lodged at the hotel where he settled his bill with an American Express credit card which was detected as fake after he had left.

Appiah arrived in Ghana this month and lodged at the same hotel. After his stay he again produced another fake American Express credit card with the name J. Appiah substituted as the owner.

However, this time, the police were alerted and he was arrested when he was about to leave for the airport.

Appiah confessed that he got the cards from a Nigerian friend who is also based in the UK.
