The EFCC has arrested 13 suspected internet fraudsters for conspiracy, possession of fraudulent documents and obtaining money under false pretence.

The EFCC spokesman, Mr. Wilson Uwujaren, who disclosed this in a statement on Friday, said the Lagos zonal office of the anti-graft agency effected the arrests.

“They were arrested on Saturday, December 16, 2017 in some parts of Lagos and Ogun States, following intelligence report received by the Commission about their activities.

“The suspects allegedly confessed to be involved in phishing, love scam, forgery, spoofing and business email compromise, among other offences,” he said.

According to the EFCC spokesman, some of the suspects live flamboyantly without any known sources of income, and are said to have bought houses and exotic cars from the proceeds of their criminal activities.

He said they were allegedly found to be in possession of forged contract papers of multinational oil and gas companies, banks’ instruments and forged data page of international passports of foreign nationals, among other documents.

Other items recovered from the suspects, he stated, included laptops, flash drives, modems, one Range Rover SUV, one Toyota Highlander, Two Toyota Corolla and one Toyota Camry.

Uwujaren said the suspects would be charged to court as soon as investigations were concluded.

      They don’t kill anybody. They just rob victims of all their money, steal identities, crush hearts, and place them into tons of debt, and the victims are left to repair the damages done which can take years upon years.

      That’s LIKE being killed only you’re still alive.

    How do you know the so called hustling doesn’t result in killing someone. You steal all their money, who’s to say the victims did kill themselves? Think about that you low lifes, I hope they all get long prison sentences. Don’t forget the soldier whose identity is often stolen so you low life’s can make a quick score, their lives are turned upside down to. Long prison sentences for all involved.
