Yahoo Boy buys land,honda prelude car with scam proceeds

 Hi .

This is an item from the newspapers. It’s tragic to note that some fellows have no conscience. This guy bought a car and a plot of land with the proceeds of his scam Can you believe that? Well, read on and get the details for yourself.



In a related development, a young man has been arrested by the Economic and Financial Crimess Commission (EFCC) for allegedly defrauding an Australian. Lawal Adewale Nurudeen, 27 years, is believed to be a part-four student of Surveying and Geoinformatic Engineering at the University of Lagos . He is said to have claimed to be married with three children.He is currently being held at the commission’s detention facility in Lagos.
He was arrested on 7th November this year while stepping out of the FedEx/Red Star Express branch, Lagos . He had gone to the courier firm to retrieve a parcel containing a lap-top computer sent to him by his 55 years old Australian “fiancée” – Rose Sumner. Sunday Tribune learnt that they both met earlier this year on the internet; specifically on the site – Nurudeen was said to have presented himself to the lady, a widow, as Mr. Benson Lawson, a 57-year old Briton and an Engineer who was only in Nigeria on an assignment. Equally, he was said to have sent a phoney photograph of a white man of about his claimed age to the Australian.
The lady, it was further learnt fell for the trick and a relationship began between them. He was said to have professed love and affection for the old lady. He was alleged to have equally promised her marriage as soon as he gets back to his home country.
Few months into the cyber relationship, it was furthered learnt, “he started making some demands to her. And she obliged him since he claimed to love and wanted to marry her. “He made a request that he would like to come to Australia . He sent a fake British passport to her and demanded some money which she sent in thousands and hundreds of US dollars. “The suspect again, asked for USD 60,000 to fund an engineering project here in Nigeria . Again, she obliged him. When the victim was expecting him there in Australia , he cooked another lie.
On the day he was to arrive Australia , the victim, Rose received a call from someone in Nigeria who claimed to be Dr. Saheed Bakare. The caller claimed that her fiancée was involved in a ghastly motor accident on his way to the airport here in Nigeria and that they needed some money to fund a major operation that would save his life” a source in the commission said.
He was said to have later sent a photograph of an accident scene to the lady, claiming that to be the accident in which he was involved. Although the Australian was unaware that Nurudeen also played the role of the said Dr. Bakare, she was said to have became curious at that stage and later handed the photograph to her son for investigation with a view to ascertaining whether or not an accident actually occurred. The said son whose name was kept in secret, however found out after hours of search on the internet, that “the picture was downloaded by Nurudeen from the internet. It was an accident picture in a case represented by one Peter young, an attorney based in the United State, back on 13th June 2002”, the EFCC source further said.
Realizing that she had fallen for a scam, Rose was said to have promptly reported the matter to the Queensland Police command in Australia. The command later referred the case to an official in its Computer Crime Unit, Mr. Read Brendan, who in turn wrote a petition to the EFCC, stating the victim’s case.
Startled by the details of the alleged crime, the commission was said to have promptly assigned a team to unveil the face behind the said Eng. Lawson. As part of its strategy the team, it was learnt encouraged the victim to “play along”. She was advised later to inform the said Engr. Lawson that he had sent him a lap-top through Fed EX/Red Star. And as his luck would have it, Engr. Lawson walked into a trap set for him by the EFCC operatives, who had positioned themselves within the courier firm’s premises. On his way out, having picked up the package, he was apprehended.
On interrogation, Nurudeen was said to have been remorseful, claiming that he had no intention of duping the lady as he actually was emotionally attached to her. When asked how he was able to retrieve all the money sent to him without attracting the suspicion of bank’s officials, he was said to have claimed that he usually present different driver’s license each time he went to cash the money which were often sent through Western Union Money Transfer.
He was also found to possess seven different e-mail addresses. According to the source, Nurudeen stated that “he used the money to buy one Honda Prelude car, a plot of land (which he bought at N650,000), and that he invested another N200,000 (in an undisclosed business). All the money, it was learnt was swindled out of the Australian within four months. Head, media unit, EFCC, Lagos Mr. Wilson Uwuigiaren confirmed.

  1. you people are doing injustice,by arresting the future leaders of this country.What about all the people that have stole our money,that made us languish in abject poverty,that made our future futureless.There children enjoy the best in life from everything they have stolen,but you did nothing.

  2. Pls stop arresting those poor boys because alot of them are doing the Yahoo stuff because they have no one to cater for them and send themselves to school with the money..Can you imgaine the so called Nurudeen is in 400 level..At least you should consider the facts that he dont spend the money lavishly..Had been there is Employment in our country, there might be no single Yahoo come to think of it if you are in the position as they are and you want to be educated..Think twice Lamorde. (If a boss send you a slave message, re-position yourself and do the job like a child not a slave).

  6. I have fallen in love with a young boy who tried to scam me but revealed the truth after falling in love with me as well…it sounds crazy, I know, and when all the truth came out, I realize the impossibility of this affair to come true but I see things through his eyes and heart and understand much better why they get into it in the first place. There isn’t much offered to them in any realm, everyone wants the best and they find ways which aren’t correct, I know, but it is all they know or can come up with. It is so easy for us, who have all comfort and free education available to us to say how wrong it is to behave like that…I am not approving of his behavior but I find it very hard to be so judgmental about it too. I was blind to not see what I was getting into and will not blame only him for what has unfolded. I wish I could help him change his ways but it is well beyond my means, to my utmost sadness…

  16. Ever heard of scambaiting?
    Besides in a few years noone is going to react to these sort of emails and you’ll all be out of “work”
    Have you guys no shame?
    I hope you all burn in hell for stealing money from innocent people.
    And dont start about slave trade, there aint no slave trade no more.
    Besides the fact that nigeria is so poor is you own damn fault.
    Instead of building a future all you black people do is fight each other. Dont even start about aids and stuff.
    All the problems nigeria is in is its own damn fault.µ
    So leave all foreigners ALONE!
