Kwadwo Addeah Prempeh

A swindler from Ghana

Stanbic Bank in Ghana confirms: Kwadwo Addeah Prempeh committed forgery and fraud — 1 September 2019

Stanbic Bank in Ghana confirms: Kwadwo Addeah Prempeh committed forgery and fraud

Kwadwo Addeah Prempeh duped two accommodations in the Netherlands with the same trick: claiming that he had requested his bank to wire the money, then pretending ‘delays’ due to ‘bank problems’, and finally not paying his bills at all. But how exactly did he do it? We researched the case and found hard proof that he committed fraud.

When Kwadwo Addeah Prempeh received an e-mail from his accommodation in Ede with an instruction to wire the payment of € 2,346 for his bill, he forwarded them the following e-mail:

Kwadwo Addeah Prempeh’s intimidation tactics and blatant racism — 19 August 2019

Kwadwo Addeah Prempeh’s intimidation tactics and blatant racism

People who meet Kwadwo Addeah Prempeh for the first time, encounter him as friendly and modest. As long as he is pleased and served, that image sticks. But when he’s being confronted about his lies and kept accountable for his misconduct, his character and communication changes. He becomes accusatory, offensive and blatantly racist and sexist.

To help our investigation, the Dutch accommodation owners who hosted Addeah Prempeh, provided their full correspondence with him. This is an interesting read in itself as it illustrates his double-faced character.

When confronted with unpleasant facts, the Ghanaian swindler, as a defense mechanism, creates a lot of ‘noise’. He takes on a victim role, acting as if the whole world is against him. The people he duped are turned into the offenders. They are the ones who treated this humble and honest man from Africa so unfairly. Addeah Prempeh does not take any responsibility for his own behaviour.

Kwadwo Addeah Prempeh ‘thanks’ his hosts by urinating in their living room — 27 July 2019

Kwadwo Addeah Prempeh ‘thanks’ his hosts by urinating in their living room

In May and June 2019 Kwadwo Addeah Prempeh deceived the main tenants of a student apartment in Wageningen, The Netherlands. The owners provided an account of what happened. Remarkable detail: before he left he urinated in their living room.

After the problems Addeah Prempeh caused in an accommodation in Ede, he moved on to a student house in Wageningen, where one of the residents had offered his room as a sublet on Facebook. The main tenants agreed with him that he would pay the rent within three days, but despite several reminders Addeah never paid his rent. He played out the same scam as in Ede: postponing payment of the rent, pretending ‘banking problems’, and enjoying a free ride.

When his hosts became suspicious, pressured him to pay, and called for a meeting, he left the property overnight on June 18, after he stole € 90 out of a jacket and urinated on the couch and carpet in their living room.

How Kwadwo Addeah Prempeh duped a touristic accommodation in The Netherlands — 11 July 2019

How Kwadwo Addeah Prempeh duped a touristic accommodation in The Netherlands

In April 2019 Kwadwo Addeah Prempeh deceived a b&b / shortstay accommodation in The Netherlands. The owners provided a detailed account of what happened. It gives helpful insight in the cunny tactics and lies of this swindler from Ghana.

We relate the story in their own words:

“In our property in Ede we regularly host guests for Wageningen University and Research (WUR), an internationally well-known university specialized in food and life sciences. Most of our guests are super satisfied with their stay and it rarely happens that they don’t pay their bill or otherwise abuse our hospitality. But Addeah turned out to be the worst visitor we’ve had in many years. We even had to end his stay prematurely, which really is the last resort in hospitality. He didn’t pay his bill and continually came up with excuses and lies, in the end even falsely accusing and threatening us. He has been officially reported to the Dutch police for swindling / scamming and slander.
