The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has arrested one Damilola Fasakin for alleged romance scam through the Internet.
EFCC spokesman, Wilson Uwujaren, in a statement on Friday said Fasakin is a French graduate of Ekiti State University, Ado-Ekiti.
The suspect poses as Anthony Miller, Dave Mason and Bright Washington, deceived and defrauded unsuspecting ladies on the internet to the tune of N2 million.
”At the point of arrest, EFCC operatives recovered one Dodge Caliber Sxi car with registration number EKY-145EC and an NYSC clearance/discharge letter.
”Other items recovered from him are three copies of fake international passport data pages with different names and pictures, two drivers’ licenses and suspected fake bank documents”, he added.
Uwujaren noted that the suspect used the fake international passports to collect his loots at the Moneygram desk with the connivance of bank officials who collected 10 per cent on each transaction.
The statement added that the suspect would be arraigned as soon as investigation was completed.
