Man packages rice, sells it as iPhone to buyers


Ghanaian-Canadian man has been arrested for allegedly defrauding two clients by selling packaged rice to them as an iPhone.

An online platform, YEN.com.gh reports that Andrew Boateng Gyimah was arrested in Toronto, Canada, after he was reported to the police by two of his victims.

According to Canadian authorities, Andrew met up with one of his victims in an area of Islington Avenue after the victim had seen an advert he posted online.



Then he gave the victim a box, which he said contained the iPhone 6.

However, when the victim opened the box, all that was therein were 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.


Apple’s iPhones are highly sought after by many millennials and could set you back by about $550.

In this talk, Eugene Abels invites us to stop pointing fingers at governments, unite and reflect on our history and also, to change our thought patterns, attitudes and habits in order to create the community/nation we want.

A deliberate Change Agent and technocrat committed to international best practices who has in three decades traversed the Real, Banking and Public Sectors of the Nigerian Economy, Eugene Irefa Abels was born, bred and schooled in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, Nigeria. He hails from two oil producing Communities, Nembe and Finima and believes that they are a microcosm of the Niger Delta Region.

An exponent of the need to exorcise our Colonial past from the souls of our public servants and elected officials, he believes the art of governance has been reduced to the single person pronoun ‘I’ whereas ‘we the people’ holds no relevance.
