Fraudsters Who Specialise In Buying Identity Information From Bankers Arrested For Stealing $10Million From Canadians & People Living Abroad

A massive fraud ring has been broken by the officials of Toronto Police command.

During a raid in Toronto, 45-year-old Adedayo Ogundana (pictured above) and 37-year-old Adekunle Johnson Omitiran were arrested while 44-year-old Duro Akintola popularly called Michie Noah and 47-year-old Emmanuel Salako aka Gee Salaq were declared wanted.

Gee Salaq who used the name George Salako to ferry expensive items bought with stolen credit cards to Toronto from the United States was indicted by the US Postal Inspection Service in Chicago.

The investigation which started last year summer led police to seize 37 credit cards obtained using stolen identity information of Canadians, several stolen mail and notebooks containing SIN # and biodata information of about 5000 residents of the Greater Toronto Area.

Adekunle Omitiran was said to have developed friendship with bankers who sold real identity information like Social Insurance Numbers and date of birth with genuine name to him.

The bankers currently under police radar allegedly sold the information to Omitiran to enable his fraud ring to apply for credit cards using genuine information of Canadians who have good credit report.

They have used identity theft and fraud to steal $10 million from people in course of their operation.

Items recovered from the suspects include $150,000 luxury watches, $10,000 crocodile shoes, and flashy clothings.

    The most annoying thing is that these people will visit Nigeria with their ill gotten money and start displaying their loot & people will start comparing them with those who are working hard and honestly to earn their money.
