Crime / Nigerian Man Sentenced To 5 Years In Prison For Wire Wire Scam by Owoyi: 5:00pm On Sep 14, 2018
According to the US Department of Justice (DoJ), ONYEKACHI EMMANUEL OPARA was sentenced Tuesday, September 11, 2018 in Manhattan, NewYork federal court to 60 months in prison based upon OPARA’s participation in fraudulent business email compromise scams that targeted thousands of victims in the United States and around the world.Through these scams, OPARA and his co-conspirators attempted to defraud victims of over $25 million. On April 11, 2018, OPARA pled guilty to conspiracy to commit wire fraud (wire wire) before U.S. District Judge Paul A. Crotty, who imposed the sentence.

Between 2014 and 2016, OPARA and his co-defendant, David Chukwuneke Adindu (“Adindu”), participated in multiple business email compromise (“BEC”) scams that targeted thousands of victims around the world, including in the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia, Switzerland, Sweden, New Zealand, and Singapore. OPARA sent bogus emails to employees of the victim companies directing that funds be transferred to specified bank accounts. The emails purported to be from supervisors at those companies or from third party vendors with whom the companies did business. In reality, the emails were either sent from email accounts with domain names very similar to those of the companies and vendors, or the metadata for the emails was modified to make it appear as if the emails had been sent from legitimate email addresses. After victims transferred the funds as directed in the bogus emails, the funds were quickly withdrawn or transferred to other bank accounts controlled by scheme participants. In total, the BEC scam participants attempted to steal more than $25 million from victims around the world.
In furtherance of the BEC scams, OPARA created accounts on dating websites and entered into online romantic relationships with individuals in the United States by portraying himself as a young attractive woman named “Barbara.” “Barbara” would then instruct these individuals in the United States to send their money overseas and/or to receive money from BEC scams and forward the proceeds to other scheme participants located overseas acting as a money mule. For example, one victim with whom OPARA struck up a romantic relationship sent over $600,000 of the victim’s own money to bank accounts controlled by scheme participants at OPARA’s direction. OPARA also attempted to recruit at least 14 other individuals via dating websites to receive funds from BEC scams into their bank accounts and then transfer the proceeds to overseas bank accounts.

OPARA was arrested on December 22, 2016, in Johannesburg, South Africa, and was extradited to the Southern District of New York on January 26, 2018. In addition to the 2 years prison term, OPARA, 30 of Lagos, Nigeria, was sentenced to two years of supervised release and was ordered to pay $2.5 million in restitution.

Co-conspirator Adindu pled guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud and one count of conspiracy to commit identity theft in 2017. Adindu was sentenced to 41 months in prison and was ordered to pay back $1.4 million.

Geoffrey S. Berman, the United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York, praised the investigative work of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Mr. Berman also thanked Oath’s E-Crime Investigations Team, the National Prosecuting Authority for South Africa, the South African Police Service, and the United States Marshals Service. Mr. Berman noted that the investigation is still ongoing to arrest more culprits.

Phones / Beware: Sextortion The Latest Scam In Town. by Owoyi: 12:07pm On Sep 14, 2018
Scammers are really upping their games this days, there is a clever new twist to old email scam which is called Sextortion. Sextortion simply means sex extortion.

Online scammers sent out spam emails telling recipients they have their compromising images and videos where they have been caught watching porn through their webcam and then threatens the recipient that they will release the video to all of their contacts unless they pay a Bitcoin ransom. Now you may be thinking this is not unusual, the scaring part of the email is that it contains real password used by the victim.

You may also like list of of Top Nigeria websites every internet newbie should know
The email reads:

I’m aware that ******* is your password. You do not know me and you are probably thinking why you are getting this e mail, correct?

Well, i actually placed a malware on the adult videos (pornography) website and do you know what, you visited this web site to experience fun (you know what I mean). While you were watching videos, your internet browser initiated working as a RDP (Remote Desktop) that has a key logger which gave me accessibility to your display and also webcam. after that, my software program obtained all your contacts from your Messenger, Facebook, as well as email.

What exactly did I do?

I made a double-screen video. First part displays the video you were viewing (you've got a nice taste haha), and second part shows the recording of your webcam.

What should you do?

Well, I believe, $2900 is a reasonable price tag for our little secret. You'll make the payment via Bitcoin (if you don't know this, search "how to buy bitcoin" on Google).

BTC Address: 19ZFj3nLSJCgoAcvZSgxs6fWoEmvJhfKkY

(It is cAsE sensitive, so copy and paste it)


You have 24hrs to make the payment. (I've a unique pixel within this email message, and now I know that you have read this e mail). If I do not get the BitCoins, I will definitely send out your video to all of your contacts including relatives, co-workers, and so forth. Nonetheless, if I receive the payment, I'll erase the video immidiately. If you want evidence, reply with "Yes!" and I will send your video to your 9 friends. It is a non-negotiable offer, that being said do not waste my time and yours by replying to this e-mail.

What makes the email so confusing is that it contained recipient real password or a password they had previously used. You might be wondering how do they get this password, well this is very simple.

Scammers have access to a list of compromised passwords from one of the many data breaches that have occurred within the last decade although websites aren’t supposed to store passwords in plain text but sadly, some still do and ten years ago it was even more common. Even when sites store your passwords securely, hackers can still unhash the password and then put it up for sale on the dark web. The most annoying thing is that anyone can buy this vital information on Darkweb for as low as $1.

So far, more than more 1000 people have coughed up $7500,000 in Bitcoin for fear of their act being exposed.There are three main reasons this scam is successful

First, People often watch porn on their computer and so could easily be convinced a hacker knew what they were doing.

Second, it’s certainly feasible to gain access to someone’s webcam to watch them, and it’s happened before.

Finally, as the hackers have obtained old victim passwords that were once (or still are) in use, it’s easier to manipulate recipients into believing their computer has been taken over.

According to the FBI, here are some things you can do to avoid becoming a victim:

-Never send compromising images of yourself to anyone, no matter who they are — or who they say they are.
-Don’t open attachments from people you don’t know, and in general be wary of opening attachments even from those you do know.
-Turn off or cover any web cameras when you are not using them.
