Four Arrested For Fleecing People In Email Scam - FIA & NR3C

LAHORE: A team of the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) National Response Centre for Cyber Crimes (NR3C) on Sunday arrested three Nigerian nationals Chibuke Afaamu Ohaka, Donatus Maduabuchi Ogbuagu, Emeka Obowu and a Zambian John Chongo alias Kasmir for defrauding people.
FIA Punjab Director Usman Anwar told a press conference that they would send emails to people telling them that a rich old man or a woman was about to die and wanted to donate money to the poor in Pakistan.
“They would then obtain money saying that some legal charges were needed to transfer the donation from abroad,” Anwar said. He said Kasmir had arrived in Pakistan on July 7, 2010. He said being a Zambian national, Kasmir did not need a visa for Pakistan although he could not stay in the country for more than three months.
He had overstayed in Pakistan, Anwar said. He said Obowu had failed to produce documents justifying his stay in Pakistan.
He told the FIA that he had lost his passport.
Ogbuagu came to Pakistan in August 2014 from India on a visit visa. “Now his passport carries a fresh visa allowing him to stay for 360 days in Pakistan. The visa is suspect,” the director said.
Anwar said Ohaka had produced a National Aliens Registration Authority (NARA) card for refugees but that, too, required verification.
Two laptops and seven cell phones have been recovered from the arrested people. He said a crackdown had been launched against such scammers and more people would be arrested soon. He cautioned people against falling for such scams in the future.
