Ghanaian man convicted for $3m romance fraud in US
The naturalized American citizen who was born in Ghana reportedly served as the middleman in the fraudulent scheme in which his accomplices persuaded users of social media and dating sites to provide money for gold mines, school and travel. 

 The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Western District of Missouri disclosed that the two-year scheme involved 13 victims, including three from the metro area.

The woman transferred approximately $3,292,000 to a variety of accounts starting in November of 2015. Investigators traced $2,292,000 of that to accounts that Asomani managed, and found that he used $50,000 to put a down payment on a 2019 Lexus NX300.
The victim has not received any return on her investment.

With the money Asomani received, $1,789,416 was transferred to accounts in Ghana. He also shipped 18 vehicles purchased in the United States to his home country.

Other victims were located in New Jersey, Alaska, Oklahoma, Florida, Texas, Kansas, and Iowa.

Asomani was arrested in Virginia in October of 2018. He could face a sentence of up to 100 years for his crimes.
