UK HARD ON NIGERIAN FRAUDSTERS, THEY FIND A SAFE NEST IN SOUTH AFRICA

Many Nigerian fraudsters troop into South Africa from time to time claiming the South African legal system is lenient toward.

A Nigerian career fraudster who live in Fourways, Johannesburg says it is easier to do internet fraud in and from South Africa because the policing and legal system is much more relaxed compared to that of the United Kingdom (U. K.), United States (U.S), amongst other countries.

He said South Africa and Malaysia are good nests for Nigerian fraudsters.

Recently in the U. K., Two Nigerian women, Grace Akintaro, 24, and Victoria Nwogu, have been convicted after they were found guilty by the Woolwich Crown Court in the United Kingdom of being part of an online romance fraud which defrauded seven men into paying them over £100,000.

Daily Mail reports that Akintaro of Pettacre Close, SE28, pleaded guilty to seven counts of fraud by false representation while Nwogu of Piedmont Road, SE18, pleaded guilty to one count of laundering £3,490 between April 29 and May 6, 2015, and will both be sentenced at the same court on Tuesday, June 20, 2017.

According to the report, officers from the Metropolitan Fraud and Linked Crime Online (FALCON), began an investigation in December 2014 following a referral from Action Fraud (AF) after four men had contacted the AF to report that were victims of a romance fraud scam.
