It was again harvest of convictions for the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Benin Zonal Office on July 5, 2019 as 17 internet fraudsters were convicted and sentenced to various terms of imprisonment by Justice Nnamdi Dimgba of the Federal High Court sitting in Asaba, Delta State.
.

The fraudsters were arraigned separately on one count each of impersonation and obtaining by false pretence contrary to Section (22)(2)(b)(1)(ii) of the Cyber crime (prohibition prevention etc) Act 2015 and punishable under Section 22(b)(IV) of same Act.
.

The charge against Sarumi reads: "That you Lukman Sarumi (alias Le Xuan Dong) sometimes in February 2019 in Warri, Delta State within the jurisdiction of this honourable court and with intent to obtain property, did obtain the sum of $1500 (One thousand five United States dollars) from one Xuan Nguyen by fraudulently impersonating one Le Xuan Dong and thereby committed an offence contrary to Section 22(2)(b)(ii)of the Cybercrime (prohibition prevention etc) Act 2015 and punishable under Section 22(2 )(b)(iv) of the same Act "
.
.
He pleaded "guilty" to the charge when it was read to him. Similar charges were also preferred against the other defendants by the Commission and they aĺl pleaded "guilty".

Efcc should be ready to arrest almost all Nigerian youths ,because 80%of Nigerian youths are scammers.lol that's the fact believe it or not.in one way or the other we are scamming each other.


Person go go Yankee import car wey don die come dey tell you say is clean as new smh COSPLAY go relate abi no be scam

Instead of them to go after the real criminals they put this country in this mess they are here arresting boys that went into yahoo because of what the society throw at us, a lot of us do not want to end this way,they wanted to graduate get a nice job and make their family proud.


After all the stress in school they where able to graduate family is happy everyone is now looking up to you to take over as the bread winner.

You start looking for work 2years three years no work family on your neck no financial support to start from somewhere, your mates are doing fine driving nice cars.

Boom you come across an old friend that is doing fine both of you exchange contact and started chatting,he ask you what you're doing.you started telling him your story. He then introduce you to what he's doing which is yahoo!!

May God help us in this country .

They keep securing convictions of small time criminals. They would serve the time and come out as hardened criminals, no one comes out of a Nigerian jail and becomes reformed!!

The pride of this country would almost take forever to be regained. Old ones are bad while young ones are already worse at tender ages. Tell me if these ones won't negotiate Nigeria into selling if they see buyers. Future leaders has turned future leathers and baggage for corruption.

I'm only interested in the number of years because if it is the usual 2 years, these fraudsters will resume their evil activities when they are released within such a short time.

MODIFIED.. So it's even one year imprisonment. The EFCC lawyers seem to be fraudsters themselves for continuing to record these 1 year prison terms for fraudsters who have sent some people to early grave.

I know EFCC could be arresting politicians who embezzle billions but honestly no crime is smaller or bigger than the other. All internet scammers should be caught and jailed. Whenever I feel like browsing through foreign sites like reddit or Yahoo, there's always a comment about "Nigerian prince" scam and those comments always have high votes. These guys have ruined our image all over the world and I'm glad they are now being prosecuted.

Close mouth! You talk from one side of the coin, what of the guy who manages to work years,and has all his savings taken in a twinkle of an eye, what of the pensioner paid his gratuity and has all he ever worked for riped off, what of those that commit suicide with no option left, these people do not rip spirits of their sweats,but innocent victims like you and I, and it hurts and destroys souls and families, so stop all this meaningless justifications, I schooled graduated with goo d grades, and years no job or anything to show for it, I dropped my certificates learnt carport installations, hit d streets, with no single capital or support,went to numerous upcoming buildings, walked kilometers some days, until i met my breaks and expanded,and gradually diversified into other related and bigger services, and now I employ people, it was and will never be easy,but with perseverance, and Gods grace,something must give! The elite youths of now a days want it on a platter of gold, you don't build from the top, no job is demeaning, you can add ur educational acumen and step up any service or trade, but nope, they want to ride latest cars and club all nighot and lash all slay girls, there is no dignity,neither will there be any justification for crime or 419
