Swindling raps vs Cameroonian
A Cameroon national is facing swindling charges after two Filipinos were duped into believing that their money would be tripled by making fake bills.
Police Monday filed the complaint at the city prosecutor’s office against Stephan Djonou, 34, of BP 4092 Dovala-Rue Docheur Paul, Cameroon, three days after he was arrested in an entrapment operation.
Djonou said he did not know the complainants and denied asking money from them.
Superintendent Santiago Rapiz, head of the Bacolod City Police Special Operations Group, said the identification cards recovered from Djonou included one reportedly issued by the Canadian government in the name of Tony Anderson, a United Nations ID issued to Winston Patrick, a driver’s license in the name of Samuel Smith, a Metrobank ATM card with the name Stephan Djonou and a Canadian driver’s license under the name of Samuel Kamga.
