Bangalore Police Arrest Nigerian Fraudster

It's never good to be greedy

In its latest reports, the police in Bangalore, India announced that they have arrested a Nigerian online lottery scammer and his two Indian associates.

It appears that Nigerian Paul Osagi (41) and the other two were taken down by their own greed and the attempt to con a wrong person.

Namely, one of Osagi's scam messages which inform recipients that they had won a major prize in a 'Yahoo-MSN" lottery reached a university student Dinesh Kumar (21), who decided to start communicating and send a sum of money to two ICICI bank accounts appointed to Osagi, who was posing as a British diplomat. The money request was explained by Osagi as a fee to ensure the prize was paid in India.

The doom of the fraudsters happened when they decided to call Kumar from a local mobile number and ask him to send in more money for 'airport charges'. This is when Kumar reported them to the police's Central Crime Branch, which not long afterwards started an investigation, conducted a survey of CCTV footage at the ATM where the scammers withdrew the money, and then arrested the gang.

According to Deputy Commissioner of Police M. Sudhakar, 'This is yet another case where bank accounts and SIM cards activated with bogus documents become effective tools in the hands of culprits. Video footage at an ATM centre in Bangalore showed two persons drawing the money.

'Following specific clues, the team arrested Osagie and his associates Mohamed Afzal (29) and Rajesh Viswanath Kedia (49). Rs. 94,000 was recovered.'
