Law Enforcement agencies have arrested Maxwell Peter, an alleged internet fraudster, in the Tamale Metropolis for his involvement in a $10 million gold scam.

Maxwell Peter was apprehended in Tamale in a joint operation comprising of law enforcement agents of the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI), Ghana's Economic and Organized Crime Office (EOCO), and the Bureau of National Investigations (BNI) in his house in Tamale, and taken to Accra.

According to initial reports, Maxwell Peter was arrested along with five other suspects (Babatunde Martins, Bernard Emurhowhoariogho Okorhi, Dana Brady, James Dean, Javier Luis and Ramos Alonso) involved in the gold scam.

Reports say that another five suspects (Sumaila Hardy, Victor Daniel Fortune Okorhi, Dennis Noah, Olufoajimi Abegunde, Ayodeji Olumde Ojo) are still at large, making the group a total of 11 suspects.

The group have been accused of scamming a US-based company out of $10 million under the pretense of supplying the company with gold bars.

Details have it that they sent the company emails containing links or attachments to malicious websites that infected their network. Important information was stolen by the suspects that helped them scam the company. Maxwell Peter and his accomplices were successful in getting the company to release the money, but never supplied the gold.
