“She promised to marry him” – 21-year-old Lagos model defrauds German man of $220,000



A 21-year-old lady, Cynthia Chioma Atuonah, has been arrested by the Police Special Fraud Unit, Ikoyi, Lagos, for allegedly deceiving a 50-year-old German with a fake marriage engagement and defrauding him of $220,000.

Atuonah, who claimed to be a model and owner of a massage spa known as The-Chi-Place, lured the 50-year-old victim on Instagram by feigning romantic intentions towards him, thereby gaining the victim’s trust and goodwill.

Johnson, a Superintendent of Police, further said:

“Miss Atuonah Chioma promised to marry the victim, invited him to Nigeria for visits on several occasions, and convinced him to relocate permanently to Nigeria to live together as husband and wife.

“In a ploy to dispel suspicion, the victim was made to meet with Atuonah Chiomas’ parents at Ikot-Abasi, Akwa Ibom State where he received their blessings to marry their daughter.
