Court Convicts Two Internet Fraudsters In Benin City

Stanley Okereke and Ngene Daniel were convicted after they pleaded guilty to the one-count charge brought against them by the EFCC.

Okereke created a fake Facebook account and posed as James Mason, a Caucasian American to fraudulently obtain $1,025 from Sonia Chicaroni on the pretext that they were in a romantic relationship.

In the same vein, Ngene deceitfully received $600 from his victim, Benita Ollisson, an American citizen over a phoney romantic relationship. He also created a Facebook account as Scott Wells, a Dutch, and pretended to be in a relationship with Ollisson.

Justice Belogore sentenced them to two months in prison with an option of N100, 000 fine each.
