Kingpin Nigerian of online lottery fraud scam held

A Nigerian who cheated a person from Kalpakkam to the tune of Rs 14.68 lakh through an online lottery scam was arrested in Nasik by the cyber crime cell of the CB-CID and brought to the city on Wednesday. He was identified as Festos alias Murphy Vazigo Agbaifa (38).

According to the police, K Ramamoorthy of Kalpakkam remitted Rs 14.68 lakh towards "service and transfer charges" after receiving mail announcing him as the winner of Rs 4 crore in an online lottery. He was asked to deposit the money in various accounts
of various banks across the country. However, the scamsters stopped all contact with him after getting the money.

Ramamoorthy then lodged a complaint with the cyber crime cell and a special team took up the investigation.

The accounts used by the accused were tracked down and Stephen picked up in Chennai on March 4. Following the tips provided by him, the police arrested another account-holder, Mukesh Anand Chudasama, in Mumbai on May 7. They found that most of the other bank accounts operated by the accused were in fictitious names and had addresses. The police then got these accounts, containing Rs 9 lakh, frozen.

In the follow-up investigation, the cyber crime officials found that the kingpin was a Nigerian based in Mumbai. When police traced his routes, they found that Festos had already been arrested and was lodged in Nasik prison. The CB-CID team then re-arrested him and brought him to Chennai. He has been remanded in judicial custody.
