The two exchanged phone numbers, started chatting on WhatsApp and became friends. After winning his confidence, the accused informed the victim that he was looking for a business partner in India to help him acquire raw material for his cancer research.

With promises of high returns, the accused appointed an agent in India and lured the victim to buy one liter of “Crenulata liquid vv extra-solution” worth Rs 5 lakh as a sample from him. The solution was supposed to be raw material for cancer research.

Over a period of time, the accused made the victim transfer a total of Rs 30 lakh in different bank accounts to procure raw material for the research.

The six accused then transferred the deposits into their bank accounts.

After a complaint was filed at the cyber crime police in Ahmedabad, the accused was traced down in Maharashtra and arrested.

The investigation revealed that the Nigerian accused had formed a gang along with John Amokhole, 36, a Nigerian, SheshamNashaba, 22, from Uganda, Gittanjali aka Sona Suraj Dhakolia,24, a resident of West Mumbai and Sagar Tusiram Gupta, 27, from India.

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.
