In India, the Cyber Crime Wing of Greater Chennai Police in Tamil Nadu, India, has busted a gang of Nigerian nationals who allegedly cheated many businessmen in the city and elsewhere in the State by promising good returns on their investments.
The police arrested the four suspects, who were operating in Kharghar, a suburb of Navi Mumbai and brought them to Chennai on Thursday, March 23, 2023.
The police said Okories Godswill Sainasa, 32, Uche John Imeka, 47, Godwin Immanuel, 32, and Eposie Uchenna Stanley, 32, worked in teams and contacted the businessmen first through LinkedIn.
One of the teams with a fake profile picture of a white woman in the name of Nora Morrison from Canada on WhatsApp status approached the victim, a businessman from Kolathur.
She claimed to be the Chief Executive Officer of a Canada-based pharmaceutical firm and offered good commission for supplying herbal oil. Then the others got in touch with her.
“Our team conducted an investigation for 10 days with help of Navi Mumbai police and searched the house of suspects in Kharghar police station limits and arrested four of them,” Mr. Vinodh Kumar said.
