Martha was found guilty by the court presided over by Mrs Justice Asare- Botwe for exploiting 246 customers of the bank by collecting sums of money from them between 2015 and 2016 on the pretext of investing it in fixed deposits.
She had promised customers interest rate of between 18 and 20 per cent per month.
The fake fixed deposit was not sanctioned by the bank, but was created by Amakye.
