Police nab suspected yahoo boy for allegedly defrauding American of $80,000

The Osun State Police Command has arrested a 23-year-old Femi Agboola, for allegedly defrauding a United States national of $80,000 through Internet scam.

Speaking to journalists in Oshogbo, the Commissioner of Police in Osun State, Mr. Fimihan Adeoye,said

“The suspect, who is an internet fraudster defrauded an American of the sum of $80,000. He presented himself as a woman on the Internet and he succeeded in seeking the friendship of his victim who thereafter paid the money into his account.
“Although he has denied collecting $80,000 but $43,000. Our concern is the terrible damage this fellow must have done to the image of Nigeria and Nigerians living abroad. His action has gone to further show that many youths are not interested in hard work again.”

On his part, the suspect said

“I always disguise in a feminine form via profile photo, asking for serious relationship with my clients, in which I do solicit for financial assistance thereafter under false pretence,” Agboola disclosed.

The CP said an investigation was still ongoing into the case adding that suspect would be charged to court very soon.
