Hotel Cleaner Arrested Over N500million Fraud by johnnyvid: 1:30am On Sep 11
The operatives of Rapid Response Squad of the Lagos State Police Command have arrested a 30 year old hotel cleaner for defrauding a company of N2 million and attempting to collect another N500 million after hacking into the company’s e -mail address.
.
.
The suspect, Ahuja Sylvester was on Friday picked up by operatives in 911 Hotel, Warri, Delta State. He had sometime in April, 2017, hacked into the e – mail of a Lagos based company, posing as the Managing Director and instructing the firm’s accountant to disburse the sum of N2 million into his Access Bank account.
.
.
Using the same approach in June 2017, he again requested the payment of N500 million into a Zenith Bank account. The company detected this and quickly alerted the police who got him arrested.
.
.
The RRS Decoy team in their investigations discovered that the initial N2m was withdrawn with a debit card belonging to Ahuja Sylvester. Ahuja, in his statement to the police denied hacking into the account of any company, stressing that one NYSC member, Emmanuel, was the culprit.
.
.
He stated that he met Emmanuel at his work place in April, 2017. According to him: “Emmanuel told me that he was stranded and that somebody was going to send money to him.
.
.
He requested that I allow him use my ATM card because he couldnt locate his own and I did. He told me that I should alert him whenever I received credit alert on my phone and I did.
.
.
I expected these transactions to have been completed after two days. After almost a week, I saw him and I requested for my ATM, he told me he was still using it. He later told me that he had misplaced it. That was how he didn’t return the debit card again and he disappeared.
.
.
My salary came and I approached the bank. That was when I was told my account was having issues. This was the moment I got to know my account was used for fraudulent transactions.”

Look at him?

N500 million at once?who does he think he is?Abacha? it is his lack of intelligence that put him in trouble. If he had been asking for the N2 Million that he had earlier succeeded with, i am sure nobody would have detected.

Good thing is that at least he can claim to be a millionaire for a short while.

The lesson here is: For your safety, DO NOT ALLOW ANYONE USE YOUR ACCOUNT
Otherwise, you may land yourself in jail for someone else's crime.

Be careful especially in ATM stands.

These things are very popular.

I remember last year in Lagos island, some guy who was always doing this. Begging people to assist him so as to make transactions with their cards.

Gave him a flimsy excuse at first contact only for him to resurface months later, with the same talk, apparently forgetting he had seen me before. It was security that saved him from elaborate beating that day.

Greed is not smiling.

Don't allow anybody to use your account for any transaction, it's might be a fraud. I'm convinced this guy is not guilty. They should use CCTV to trace the guy that borrowed his ATM

Re: Hotel Cleaner Arrested Over N500million Fraud by DadojoReloaded(m): 9:38am On Sep 11
I believe his story.

As someone who has been scammed before, I can relate with the Guy's story.

2 things are involved:

1. He may be an accomplice
2. He may not know about the crime.


There is a type of scam called M.I.T.M.

Man in the middle scams usually leaves an innocent person as the culprit, while the main perpetrator disappears into thin air.

I feel he is a victim of M.I.T.M

For him to hack an email address means he's a smart dude. If it was in a developed country his brain power would have been used to mitigate further attacks, but here the reverse is the case. We still have a long way to go in this country.
