The South African Police Service has uncovered counterfeit money to the tune of 80 million US Dollars at a house north of Johannesburg today. Two Nigerian nationals aged 40 and 41 were arrested in the raid.

Seven luxury watches worth almost R1 million and 18 cellphones were also seized. The men will appear in the Johannesburg Commercial Crimes Court on Wednesday.

UPDATE :

Police probe possible fake dollar syndicate

Police are investigating what could be a counterfeit dollar syndicate after they arrested two Nigerian men at a house in Atholl in Johannesburg. On Monday, officers discovered five large steel crates filled with fake US$100 bills - valued at around US$80 million.

The two suspects seemed dazed as officers questioned them amid the broken tiles and overturned couches.

Police said it was one of the biggest busts of this kind they have made in a while. “It is believable that more arrests can be made on this particular bust because we do believe that a bigger syndicate is involved,” said the police’s Tshisikhawe Ndou.

Officers also confiscated computer hard drives, 18 cellphones, seven luxury watches and a brand new Kia Cerato.

The two men are expected to appear in the Commercial Crimes Court in Johannesburg on Wednesday.

Seven luxury watches worth almost R1 million and 18 cellphones were also seized. The men will appear in the Johannesburg Commercial Crimes Court on Wednesday.

In another incident, a South African national was arrested at the airport on Friday on suspicion of carrying papers in the shape of currency notes and a chemical. "The accused could convert the papers into dollars by just adding the chemical to it," the police said.

The accused, Ncube Emmanuel (38), was travelling from Mumbai to Kolkata.

All these tribalist wey full for NL una no dey tire.

okay if na igbo/yoruba man wetin una go do.
Bankole where is he from? igbo's may be into all sorts of dirty dealings, but they are not the only Naija tribes that disgrace the country.

shun tribalism is not good for your health.

Hi bro ,i sent you you a reply over a week ago.Check your spam/trash box.I am resending the email now ,please confirm that you received it.  wink

By the way get ready for another round of Naija verbal bashing by SA peeps in SA.All the blogs here in SA are on fire today with anti naija slogans and chants.They will want to look down on you ,stand tall and tell them to f off.

One question that baffles me is ; How were they able to print so much fake dollars  undecided They must have some sort of printing press! Nwa afo did you notice that they showed that some guns were also sophisticated from these guys in the report?

The ugly truth is that these guys were already rich if they had in their possesion 7 watches that altogether are worth R1 Million Rands (N22 Million Naira).Someone who owns such expensive "jewelry" will have a lot of millions in their bank account.Why could they not invest in a legit beusiness instead of continuing in their evil ways undecided

what do expect from a bad government, waves of different crimes. even Ghana want some naija guys out. as for wat tribe are they, na una sabi, wetin the international community hear be 2 [b]Nigerian [/b]criminals. 150million Nigerians are potential criminals.
Re: Nigerians Arrested For $80 Million Counterfeit Money by Nobody: 8:06am On Jun 07, 2011
$80m? Naija! These my people hustle no get equal. No wonder one gets to see all kinds of demonic mansions in Lekki and every part of Lagos. . .as well as thousands of Range Rovers, LRs, Benzs, Bentleys, BMW X6s etc. all over the place - in spite of the so-called widespread poverty in the country. How many of these faceless millionaires can claim to have acquired their fortunes legitimately? Na so e easy? Na real wah.

I don't blame them though. You're worthless and despised in this country if you ain't getting cheddar by any means necessary. One has got to do what one has got to to. . .the end justifies the means.

That is a different incident involving a South African national who is into "wash wash".The Nigerian criminals also work with locals to commit crimes.The hungry locals help the Nigerians scout for local "mugus" and introduce them to the Nigerians who then work on the "mugus" to fleece them of their money.

The names of the two Nigerians arrested has not yet been released but i am certain that they will release their names soon.

Re: Nigerians Arrested For $80 Million Counterfeit Money by playmode(m): 11:51am On Jun 07, 2011
It is just so funny how Nigerian criminals are intelligent enough to commit these sophisticated crimes but not smart enough to keep a low profile.From the pictures and information i have gathered so far ,these guys were staying in Athol suburb,now Athol is like the hamptons of New York.The cheapest apartment there is going for like $200,000 not to even mention the cost of a full house.To make matters worse they were staying in an access controlled estate which had surveillance cameras and security patrol vehicles.

South Africa is a racist country where white folks do not want to stay in the same area as black folks.In such estates in SA,it is common knowledge that once a black family or group moves in to the estate,the white neighbors will watch/spy on them with keen eyes.

If they were smart like the Chinese criminals (mafia) in SA ,they could have moved to a remote location on the outskirts of town,maybe rent a farm and do their dirty deeds there without prying eyes but trust Naija boys ,they want to show off and live in the nicest suburb.They did not even own the property ,they were renting the full house.From what i know of Athol ,they would been paying rent of no less than R10,000 (N220,000) per month.Now that is a blatant waste.Even the estate agency that was renting the house to them could been the ones who tipped the police office off because only a few people can afford to pay such high rent in SA.

Nigerians are not the only criminals in SA but they the most stupidest ones (apart from local SA criminals).They like to make "noise" and be heard everywhere that is why they keep getting caught easily.

Clearly these enterprising gentlemen misunderstood the concept of "making money". Give them a second chance, and I am convinced that they will change careers for the better.

To ensure that they don't re-offend, those C-note printing plates should be sent to me right away for safe keeping. Praise the Lord !
