3 Nigerians in $900k fraud mess in Vietnam

Three Nigerians have brought further shame to the country after they were caught for defrauding victims of $900k in Vietnam.

Members of the scam syndicate

According to TN News, the three Nigerian scammers had who were the ring leaders in the fraud syndicate, had tricked their victims by informing them they had won grand prizes or gift packages from abroad but had to pay some money as fees for collecting the prize or bribing police and customs officers since the gifts were of big value.

They used bank accounts created with stolen or fake ID cards to collect the money.

Ho Chi Minh City police arrested Leonard with three Vietnamese accomplices for cheating victims around the country, after earlier arresting Chinonso and Peter, along with five of their accomplices late last year.

One victim from the central city of Da Nang told the police that she had lost more than VND2.1 billion after she was promised a gift package that contained more than a million dollars from a family friend overseas.

A man from Hanoi, who works for a domestic airline, borrowed money to pay nearly VND3.5 billion to receive a prize worth $1 million from a UK company.
