News is still coming in, but here is what is known now:
EFCC Uncovers Another Internet Fraud Training Centre in Abuja:
Operatives of the Abuja Zonal Office of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Have uncovered yet another underworld ‘academy’ for the grooming of internet fraudsters.
The ‘academy’ located in the Arab Contractors Area of Mpape Hills, a suburb of Abuja, was discovered when operatives, acting on intelligence, stormed the base on Thursday, February 18, and arrested 27 internet fraud suspects.
The coordinator of the ‘academy’ is said to be 30-year-old Emmanuel Clement, and his students are mostly young school drop-outs, women included, within the age range of 18 to 25 years.
Items recovered from the suspects include a Toyota Venza car, 30 mobile phones, and one laptop.
They have been arrested will be charged as soon as the investigation is concluded.
The importance of this is that this represents a significant loss to the criminal cartel running this school. Given the level of expertise most scammers have, this school has the potential to train 25 online fraudsters a week! That is 1,300 new trained scammers a year for this one organization! Possibly more.
