Man Jailed Four Months over Lottery Scam

According to the charge, Godspower impersonated one James Adams via the e-mail address [email protected] where he falsely represented himself to one Anapela Afualo that she had won money from a Facebook award.

During the Friday court sitting, EFCC counsel, Mabas Mabur, informed the court of the plea bargain agreement and prayed the count to accept it.

When the charge and the terms were read to the accused, he admitted committing the crime and pleaded guilty to same.

In view of his plea, Justice Ajoku convicted and sentenced him to four months in prison with effect from the date of his arrest being April 4, 2019.

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.
