SCARS|RSN™ SCAM BREAKING NEWS: Nigerian Nabs 32 Suspected In One Bust

The Nigerian Economic And Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) Ibadan Zonal Office, Has Arrested 32 Suspected Internet Fraudsters Also Known As “Yahoo-Yahoo Boys.”

EFCC Operatives from the Ibadan zonal office of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, on Thursday, April 25, 2019, arrested 32 people suspected to be internet scammers popularly known as ‘Yahoo-Yahoo Boys.

The arrest of the suspects was not an easy task as most of them hid in some of the most ridiculous places in the house where they were arrested. Some of the suspects hid inside chairs and other locations but they were discovered and removed.

Aged between 15 and 39 years, the suspects were arrested at Liberty Estate, Laderin area of Abeokuta, Ogun during an early morning sting operation carried out by men of the commission.

Due to the timing, the suspects were taken by surprise when the EFCC operatives swept their location in the ancient Nigerian city.

The commission’s acting spokesman, Mr. Tony Orilade, announced in a press statement in Abuja on Thursday.

He said that “the suspects were arrested at Liberty Estate, Laderin area of Abeokuta, Ogun during a sting operation.”

According to him “the suspects who ranged between the ages of 15 and 39 years, were taken by surprise when EFCC operatives swooped on them at one of their havens in the estate.”

“Fourteen of them claimed to be university undergraduates, while 18 others said they are self-employed – typical of scammers.”

Their arrest was a sequel to a petition detailing their alleged fraudulent activities, including internet fraud through which they obtain illicit funds from unsuspecting victims worldwide.

Items recovered from them include six exotic cars, laptops, mobile phones, several documents containing false pretenses and fetish/ritual objects.

“The suspects are already helping operatives of the Commission with useful information.” Mr. Orilade said. “They will be charged to court as soon as investigations are concluded,”

FAQ: How Do You Properly Report Scammers?

It is essential that law enforcement knows about scams & scammers, even though there is nothing (in most cases) that they can do.

Always report scams involving money lost or where you received money to:

  1. Local Police – ask them to take an “informational” police report – say you need it for your insurance
  2. Your National Police or FBI (www.IC3.gov »)
  3. The SCARS|CDN™ Cybercriminal Data Network – Worldwide Reporting Network HERE » or on www.Anyscam.com »

This helps your government understand the problem, and allows law enforcement to add scammers on watch lists worldwide.
