The accused, Peter Austin (29), Eboh Felix (26), Steffi Ebohon (24) and Uzaonicha Daniel Iwenwanne (26), reportedly contacted a student named Mohd Wasiuddin, and told him he's won some money. The police said the gang managed to convince the unsuspecting victim to deposit money for registration, customs clearance, processing fees and other expenses.
"Believing the gang members, Wasiuddin deposited about Rs. 35 lakh in different bank accounts operated from Gujarat, Rajasthan and Mumbai, only to realize later that it was fraud" the police in charge saidThe police arrested the four Nigerians after posing as another victim and tracing their phone call data record and email conversations.
But looking at this picture,you would have thought these men were involved in a multi million dollar scam! The whole of India police force seem to have come out for the press conference.How much could a student possibly have? The student who was defrauded is not a millionaire is he? It would have been interesting tro know how much exactly he was defrauded of..i think it was a minimal fee,that's why it was not mentioned.
