4 Nigerian Yahoo Boys & Cameroonian Scammer Arrested In Bangkok Thailand For Wire Wire Fraud, Online Romance Scam
TIS (Thailand Immigration Police) have nabbed 4 Naija citizens and a Cameroonian for allegedly scamming single Thai women into wiring them money.
Their arrest came after their victims (Thai women) reported that some foreigners they knew had been unlawfully detained at airports on their way to visit the women.
Police investigation later discovered that the women had been scammed by some gangsters operating from an apartment.
After police raided their apartment, they discovered that the scammers had fled their room using ropes (pictured above).
5 computers and many mobile phones were seized during the raid carried at Soi Lardprao 134 in Bangkok’s Bang Kapi district on the 10th of January 2018.
Chat logs on the computer led police to arrest a Cameroonian identified as John Nji and 4 Nigerians identified as Vitus Nwokemodo, Ikemefuna Oliver Ibekwe, Osaratin Irabor and Ogochukwu Iduh on the 15th of January.
They have all been charged with operating an online romance scam.
