3 Internet fraudsters arrested for hacking email and swindling estate agent of N4m

 The operatives of Rapid Response Squad, RRS, of the Lagos State Police Command have arrested three suspected internet fraudsters, who
specialised in duping property developers, for swindling an estate agent of N4m, while posing as potential client.

The names of the suspects were given as Olisa Oyegbuka, 28; Ifeannacho Kingsley, 27 and Ujumwa Aniemena, 33. They are part of the internet fraudsters hacking into e-mail addresses and using them to send messages seeking transfer of funds in tranches to different accounts.

The estate agent said: 
 “I received an e-mail giving payment instructions. The owner of the e-mail address is my client. It gave payment instructions to transfer funds.” 
 He said the total amount transferred into two accounts was N3,820,000.
His client later called him and that was when he realised that the payment instructions did not emanate from him, but from fraudsters.
