The EFCC stated that the commission arrested a final year student of Ekiti state university who confessed to have been engaging actively in internet fraud for the last four years.
According to Naij.com reports, the commission in a statement on Tuesday, January 23, alleged that the suspect, poses on the internet as an American army officer by the name ‘Dennis Martinez’ who serves in Libya.
The EFCC said he then engages unsuspecting ladies on the internet in a dating and romance scam through which he dupes them of their money. The anti-graft agency said the last victims of the suspect were the duo of Sandra Simundza and Lily F, both in Australia, from whom he claimed to have obtained about $500 (five hundred US dollars) in tranches.
The EFCC alleged that the suspect had sustained his flamboyant lifestyle through this romance scam and bought himself a 2005 Lexus car
