The arrested internet fraudsters

Operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Port Harcourt Zonal Office, have arrested three suspected internet fraudsters in a sting operation.

The suspects: Adugwe Rex Odinaka(aka Alhaji Ugly Rex),  Igwe Prince Chukwuebuka (aka Trad Marley) and Ifeanyi Nicholas Chukwulenwa, were arrested  in Omoku, Rivers State.

Preliminary investigations showed that Chukwuebuka and Chukwulenwa were into romance and dating scams and had successfully defrauded three Americans in the process.

Odinaka, on his part, engaged in “laundering of fraudulently obtained gift cards”, specifically iTunes and Amazon cards.

The suspects are operating in a syndicate. Other members of the syndicate are being tracked and funds fraudulently realized from the scam are also being tracked.  The suspects would soon be charged to court.
