NBI cybercrime division operating unit chief Victor Lorenzo said in a press conference: “We have received information that this group is actually engaged not only in credit card [scam] but also involved in love scam, investment scam, and at the same time they are using the names of government agencies to [lure] individuals not only here in the Philippines but also in other countries,” Lorenzo added.

The Arrested Suspects Are Identified As:

  • Kenneth Chukwu
  • Ikenna Dickson Okalla
  • Chukwuma George Adibe
  • Chiboy Stanley Agbasi
  • Dim Remedios
  • Abas Kashmir
  • Uba Living.

The suspect killed has been identified as Orisakwe Ifeanyi Emmanuel. The National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) anti-cybercrime agents, armed with a court search warrants, swooped in on the suspects’ hideout making the arrests and seizing their equipment – phones and computers.

The NBI anti-cybercrime agents, armed with a search warrant from the Regional Trial Court Branch 21 in Imus, Cavite, raided the suspects’ hideout on Thursday and discovered the alleged cybercrime activities of the syndicate involved in victimizing people online.

The NBI’s report says that during the raid, the now-dead suspect grabbed a pistol and attempted to shoot at officers. This represents a significant change in the Nigerian behavior and may indicate these are not just thugs but are part of a much larger cartel organization. Orisakwe was brought to the nearest hospital but was declared dead on arrival, the NBI said.

After being subdued, the official account says, he then tried to grab a hand grenade, prompting the agents to fire at him.

Items seized from the suspects include six laptops, 11 mobile phones, one skimming device, one hand grenade, one 9-millimeter pistol, eight bundles of fake dollars, various blank cards, security strips, sim cards, and credit cards.

The NBI said The suspects are facing charges for violating Republic Act (RA) 8484, or the Access Devices Regulation Act of 1998 in relation to RA 10175 or the Cybercrime Prevention Act of 2012, Presidential Decree 1866 as amended by RA 9516 or the Law on Explosives, and RA 10591 or the Comprehensive Law on Firearms and Ammunitions. The arrested scammers can be facing life in prison and deportation after they serve their sentence.

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.
