EFCC Arrests 13 Internet Fraud Stars Known As Yahoo Boys In Lagos


The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC,
Lagos zonal office, has arrested 13 suspected Internet fraudsters, better known
as `yahoo boys’,  for conspiracy, possession of fraudulent documents and
obtaining money under false pretence.
The suspects are- Badejo Tobi; Abiola Dimeji; Anthony
Godwin; Osoba Adeboye; Adelekan Abiodun and Awokoya Oriyomi Yusuf.

Others are:Oyatayo Ismail; Coffie Meschark; Sylvester
Amaddin; Olawale Farouk; Adeniran Tolani; Taiwo Michael and OyekanmiAyodeji.
They were arrested on Saturday, December 16, 2017 in
some parts of Lagos and Ogun States, following intelligence report received by
the Commission about their activities.
The suspects allegedly confessed to be involved in
phishing, love scam, forgery, spoofing and business email compromise, among
other offences.
Phishing is an attempt to obtain sensitive
information such as usernames, passwords and credit card details (and money),
often for malicious reasons, by disguising as a trustworthy entity in an
electronic communication.
Spoofing, on the other hand, is a type of scam where
an intruder attempts to gain unauthorized access to a user’s system or
information by pretending to be the user.
Some of the suspects, who live flamboyantly without
any known sources of income, were said to have bought houses and exotic cars
from the proceeds of their criminal activities.
They were allegedly found to be in possession of
forged contract papers of multinational oil and gas companies, banks’
instruments and forged data page of international passports of foreign
nationals, among other documents.
Other items recovered from the suspects included
laptops, flash drives, modems, one Range Rover SUV, one Toyota Highlander, Two
Toyota Corolla and one Toyota Camry.
The suspects will soon be charged to court as soon as
investigations are concluded.
