Nigerians arrested for e-fraud in India

Four Nigerian nationals have been arrested on fraud charges in two separate cases in India.

In one case, a Nigerian man has been arrested in New Delhi, India, for defrauding a woman in a cellphone scam.

The man, Ufondu Anthony Chukwuzubelu, allegedly sent out thousands of text messages  telling people they had won an e-lottery. He then asked his victims to transfer money into an account to receive their winnings.

One woman did so, and notified the police when she realized she had been scammed.

On the other case, three Nigerians were arrested in Bangalore for defrauding a student in an e-mailed lottery scam.

The accused, Osrogiagbon Austine, Ikeifun Moses and Maduforo Amaechi Frank, were arrested, and mobile phones, laptops and internet data cards were seized.
