The Cameroonians, Mothe De Fouda Paul Martial (30 years) and Nguyen Hang Tcheuko Minh (36 years) and the Nigerian Ifeanyi Matthew Anthony (29 years) were tried and sentenced by the Can Tho People's court in Southern Vietnam for "obtaining property by fraud".

The three men are members of a group of African scammers led by a man known as Papa, they contacted the women via Facebook and used various schemes to rip them off their money.

One of the scheme they used was asking their victims to collect and keep large amount of money that they would eventually give to members of their group that would be travelling to Veitnam. The women were promised to get 10% of the money for their trouble but were asked to pay "custom's fees" before the money is released at the port.

The second scheme used was a chemical which they claim is used to change blank paper to real money and the chemical cost $100,000.

The three defendants tricked a woman from Can Tho and another from the central province of Phu Yen between December 2017 and April 2018. They conned more than VND1 billion from the Can Tho resident and VND528 million from the one in Phu Yen.

Minh and Martial were arrested by Can Tho police on April 6, 2018. Anthony was arrested shortly after.

Minh was a footballer who acquired Vietnamese citizenship in 2013 and played for V League in 2015.

While Minh admitted to his crime, Anthony and Martial said they were only following Papa's instructions.

Finding all three defendants guilty, the court sentenced Minh to 16 years in prison, Anthony 18 years and Martial 15 years respectively.
