The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Makurdi Zonal Office, has said its will arraign, Ikechukwu Sunday Onovo, a 32-year-old suspected money transfer fraudster at one of the new generation banks in Otukpo, Benue State.
This was made known via a statement by the commission on Sunday.
“Onovo’s method includes going to Benue State University Gate to report to the security that he lost his ATM card.
“The unwary security men would then hand over the pack of lost but found ATM cards of students to him to check if his own was among. And he would steal some of the cards.”
“With the stolen cards, Onovo would hang around ATM points to offer help to people who have problems operating the machine and in the process, deliberately gives his victim his stolen card and takes his or her own.”
“He will later go back to withdraw all his victim’s money”, EFCC says.
The commission recovered two ATM cards, N15,000, ring, necklace and bracelets from him at the point of his arrest.
He reported admitted that he has made more than N1million through the fraud.
