Ghanaian Yahoo boy Scams over 30 U.S women of $2.1m, victim jumps off a Cliff

A Ghanaian man was busted Wednesday in New Jersey, for running an international love scam that turned deadly.

Rubbin Sarpong’s profile on Plenty of Fish, Match.com and other dating websites describe him as a U.S. soldier serving in Syria, but federal prosecutors said he was actually in Millville, living the high life off unsuspecting women.

He is charged with conspiracy to commit wire fraud. The 35-year-old and his accomplices, who live in Ghana, fooled more than 30 people and made over $2.1 million in a brazen dating scam that went on for three years and led at least one woman to commit suicide.

Sarpong frequently posted selfies on Instagram with large stacks of cash, expensive designer clothing, jewelry and luxury cars — all of which he allegedly bought with money that women sent him.

One of his victims committed suicide in June 2018, just two days after transferring nearly $94,000 to Sarpong and his crew.

The day before she died, the woman — whose identity was not released — allegedly went to Baltimore/Washington International Airport to meet what she thought was a diplomat with a $12 million box of gold.

Authorities said the elaborate scheme began in January 2016 and ended with Sarpong’s arrest. If convicted, he could face up to 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
