A Nigerian fraudster, Austine Ese Aiwejhoe, also known as David Fletcher and Richard, has been arrested in Delhi, India for allegedly swindling a businessman, Mohammed Ibrahim, of the sum of Rs 75 lakh (about N3 million), reports The Hansindia.

The report has it that Aiwejhoe had swindled the businessman by promising to provide spoiled American dollars and also expensive solvents to make the former tidy.

Cyberabad Deputy Commissioner of Police (Crimes) B Naveen Kumar, said that Ibrahim had lodged a complaint with the police on August 28 that a Nigerian had duped him of R 75 lakh.

"The Nigerian, according to the complaint, had defrauded Ibrahim by promising to give him spoiled American currency and also promised to provide an expensive solvent to make the spoiled currency neat.

The businessman had mortgaged his father’s property and paid the money to the swindler but when the suspect was not forthcoming, he reported the case to the police and during investigations, it was realised that Aiwejhoe who is 30-years-old, was the kingpin of the syndicate.

He also used names like David Fletcher and Richard in carrying out his scams.

The Nigerian who has been living in Indian illegally, had been cheating people in the name of lotteries and promising to secure jobs for the youth."
