Internet fraudster bags 1 year in jail
A young man who took to Internet scam to defraud people will spend the next one year in jail as his reward.
The verdict was handed down to the convict by Justice Sabiu Yahuza of the Federal High Court, Dutse, Jigawa State, after he was found guilty of defrauding one Abdul-Azeez Abdul-Rahman of the sum of N100,000 meant to be used for the registration, auction papers and clearance of a car.
According to the EFCC, Oizamisi had posed as a car dealer on the Internet where he posted a car for sale.
Abdul-Rahman had shown interest in buying the car and in the course of negotiation, the convict allegedly demanded from Abdul-Rahman the said sum.
The money was wired to him through his account in one of the new generation banks but after an endless wait for the car to be delivered, it dawned on the victim that he had been scammed.
Hence, he petitioned the EFCC. The anti-grant agency swung into action and got him arrested.
