Promising Ghanaian musician known as Rodney has been busted after wooing and marrying an old white lady to strip her of all her entire saving in a cunning manner.
Rodney Cudjoe and Beth Hainling, 68 from the UK, met on social media. Rodney then spent several months professing love to the old and lonely 68-year-old woman and managed to convince her that he was in love with her.
According to Beth Hainling, after she accepted Rodney’s love proposal, the musician who has been tagged as scammer started requesting huge sums of money from her which she granted the wishes out of love.
During an interview, pained Beth said;
I liked him and after a few months, he asked if he could borrow some money as he was waiting for a cheque. It was just £200 so I did, and he promised to pay me back. Then he needed some money for some studio equipment and I sent him another £2,000. We began talking about meeting up. I’d been to Ghana before as I’d worked as a volunteer at orphanages over there. He asked me to visit him.
He picked me up and gave me a full-on kiss in the car which gave me butterflies. I realised then we weren’t just going to be friends and that night we had s*x. It was a magical time. We spent all our time together, eating out, drinking, meeting his friends. He always had his arm around me and was kissing me.
In the middle of the interview, the 68-year-old victim of the popular love scam also narrated how Rodney pressured her to fly to Ghana for their traditional marriage ceremony.
He said he wanted to spend his life with me and had arranged a surprise wedding for five days later, the day before I was to fly home. All his friends were clapping and cheering. I didn’t feel I could say no. I loved him but I thought it was too soon.
According, Beth, Rodney started behaving horribly towards her and her kids after she flew him to the UK.
…He said, ‘How can you be broke when you’re British?’ He thought this was the land of milk and honey.
My children and friends didn’t like him. I thought it was a culture shock and he’d adapt. Eventually, I realised it was all a lie…
Devastated Beth further added that she then divorced Rodney when she realized things were going wrong. By that time the entire ‘romance’ had drained her £18,000.
I keep asking myself how could I have been so stupid as to be taken in by him. I thought it could never happen to me, but I fell for it all.
