http://thenewsnigeria.com.ng/2017/05/efcc-arraigns-2-for-e88000-romance-scam/

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, on Tuesday arraigned the duo of Ajani Isaac Adedotun, (a.k.a. Clara Williams and Lara Williams) and Adesina Segun Adedeji before Justice A.D. Oladimeji of the Osun State High Court sitting in Ede, on a 50-count charge bordering on conspiracy and obtaining money by false pretence.

The petitioner alleged that the victim, M. Wassink, a Dutch citizen, was defrauded of over €88,000 in an Internet romance scam.

One of the counts reads: “Ajani Isaac Adedotun (a.k.a Clara Williams, Lara Williams) and Adesina Segun Adedeji, on or about the 5th day of March, 2014 at Ile Ife, within the jurisdiction of this honourable court, with intent to defraud, obtained the sum of €23,000 through Adesina Segun Adedeji’s Skye Bank account from M. Wassink, under the false pretence that you are a female from Belgium and had travelled to Nigeria to buy some gemstones and bracelets and that the said sum of money represented fees for the officials securing the gemstones for you, which representation you knew to be false.”

The accused persons, however, pleaded not guilty to the charges when they were read to them.

In view of their pleas, the prosecuting counsel, Vera Agboje, asked the court for a trial date and prayed the court to remand the accused in prison custody.

 

However, counsel to the accused persons, Sanyaolu S. Akinyele and T. S. Adegboyega, respectively prayed the court to grant their clients bail.

Justice Oladimeji adjourned the case to May 16, 2017 for hearing of the bail applications and ordered the accused to be remanded in Ilesa prison custody.

A Springfield woman detained on suspicion of forgery Tuesday afternoon was released after investigators determined she was involved in a Nigerian Internet scam.
Police were sent to Williamsville State Bank, 1748 Wabash Ave., about 1:30 p.m. after the 48-year-old woman tried to cash six postal money orders totaling $5,400. Bank employees realized there was a problem with the money orders and notified police.

After being questioned by investigators from the police department and the U.S. Postal Service, the woman was released. A police report on the incident did not elaborate on why she was let go, but it did say the woman told police she had received an e-mail offering her a job cashing money orders that would be sent to her, and that she could keep 10 percent of the money if she sent the rest back.

Detectives apparently believed the woman, who is unemployed, did not understand she was participating in a scam and released her.

A 200-level student of Olabisi Onabanjo University, Muniru Adigun, has been sentenced to seven and half years imprisonment by an Ikeja High Court presided over by Justice Monike Obadina.

The accused, who was standing trial with another accused person, Emeka Ekeh over a five-count charge of conspiracy to obtain money by false pretences and forgery levelled against them by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), pleaded guilty to the charge while his accused counterpart Emeka, pleaded not guilty.

The EFCC prosecutor, Mr. Kayode Oni, told the court that the accused, who operated with the name of the CBN Governor, Professor Charles Soludo, together with the second accused, conspired to obtain 1,300 US dollars under false pretence from one Vicky Deschene, an American citizen, as processing fee for the transfer of 27,000 US dollars to her in the United States.

The sum was claimed by the accused to have been recovered from a Nigeria fraudster that obtained the sum of 33,000 US dollars from the American.

The prosecutor also told the court that the accused also forged a Union Bank Nigeria Plc’s draft in the name of one Douglas Schrether for the sum of 750,000 US dollars purported to have been issued by the bank.

The defence counsel , Mr. Tunde Adesanya, pleaded with the judge to tempter justice with mercy and that the accused was influenced by his friend and has shown remorse for his action.

The judge, while giving her ruling, said she accepted the guilty plea of the accused and convicted him as charged. She said the accused should have concentrated on his studies at the university to earn a degree and livelihood through lawful means, but because he had shown remorse for his action, she would be lenient with him.

She, however, sentenced him to 18 months imprisonment for each count without option of fine. The sentence will run concurrently.
