A specialist in wedding thefts, Emelia Appiah stole cash and gifts from a newly wed couple in Ghana by impersonating a member of the team in charge of the gift table. She even pretended to be part of the team tasked to dress the bride and was reported to have gone to her house in the morning of her wedding day. She was turned away because the bride was already dressed. Appiah then followed the bride to the church and pulled her impersonation act. Church clerks believed she was in charge of the wedding gifts and gave her access to them, including envelopes that contained 5,000 pounds in cash (about US$7,900 or over P345,000). Appiah was convicted of theft. Cash gifts and large, fluid guest lists are common in Ghana, making them attractive targets for thieves, The Guardian reported.
