SCARS™ SCAM NEWS: Nigerian EFCC Raids ‘Yahoo Boys’ Hideout
Recovers 5 Exotic Cars, Laptops, And More
Nigerian Scammers baffled by how EFCC is tracking them down! Maybe the EFCC is working with an organization that is feeding them scammer reports? ;-)
Six suspected internet fraudsters were arrested in Ibadan on Tuesday, when operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, raided their hideout at the Kolapo Ishola Estate, Akobo area of the ancient city.
Investigations have revealed that Yahoo Boys are on the increase in some of the developing areas of Akobo. Most of these fraudsters find the interior of Akobo, especially after the 2nd gates of the Army Barrack, going towards Olorunda-Aba secured for their habitation.
They erected exotic buildings all over the area.
The early morning bust, according to sources in the commission, followed a series of petitions from residents of the community detailing the alleged illegal activities of the suspects.
Ranging between the ages of 24 and 30 years, the suspects are Tella Adefemi Ibrahim, Awoniyi Adeseye Abiodun, Oladele Olawale Wasiu, Olabiti Afeez Ajibola, Akeredolu Oluwafemi Temidayo, and Oyaremi Olalekan Olabode.
The EFCC source added that a series of intelligence gathered suggested that they were neck deep in fraudulent activities ranging from love scam to other forms of internet frauds through which they obtained money from unsuspecting victims.
Items recovered for the suspects include five different models of exotic cars, laptops, mobile phones and several documents containing false pretense from the suspects.

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:
- Local Police – ask them to take an “informational” police report – say you need it for your insurance
- Your National Police or FBI (www.IC3.gov)
- The Scars 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.
