See Face Of Yahoo Boy Arrested Inside The Bank Over £30,000 Love Scam

An internet fraudster has been arrested over online £30,000 love scam.

He was arrested in the bank where he went to cash the money.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has arrested an alleged Yahoo boy over a £30,000 Love
Scam.

Fidelis Iruedo, a suspected love scammer, was arrested for allegedly defrauding a
United Kingdom citizen of £30,000 (Thirty Thousand Pounds) in a romance scam.

His arrest happened yesterday
Wednesday, January 24, 2018.
Luck ran out on 31 year old Fidelis Iruedo after a petition to the Commission by the
Nigerian High Commission, London, on behalf of one Alan Digweed, a UK citizen, alleged that the suspect had defrauded his
victim of the said amount of money.

Investigations by the EFCC revealed that Fidelis Iruedo, who voluntarily confessed
to the crime, met his victim between July
and December 2017, via a date site,
match.com.

The suspect, while parading as a lady, procured British passport using the name
'Tracy Anderson' with which he used to defraud the victim.

He was arrested in Abuja, during an
attempt to make withdrawal in a bank.

On his arrest, items recovered from
Fidelis Iruedo included: several scam letters, 3 flash drives, 1 iphone and a laptop computer.

The suspect will be arraigned in court as soon as investigations are concluded.

PROTECT YOURSELF AGAINST LOVE SCAMS

No matter how good love scams sound,
things aren't what they appear to be. In reality you're talking to a criminal sitting
in a cybercafé with a well-rehearsed
script he's used many times before.
He's hunting through chat rooms, dating sites and social networking sites searching
for victims, looking to cash in on
romance.

If you are over 30 and still single,
recently divorced, a widow, elderly or disabled then you are all the better in
his eyes. Scammers use any weakness
they find to their advantage.

Instead of sending spam letters that promise millions for your assistance,
these love or romance scammers are targeting single men and women who
are searching for love online.

They use psychological tricks to lure their victims in, use poetry and even gifts to get them under their spell, and then once you are there, will try to reach for your wallet, all the time
declaring their "undying love" for you.

The scam may take the form of asking you to cash a check for them through
your bank account because they are
"out of the country" and unable to cash it themselves, or they may come right
out and ask you to send money to help
them out of a fabricated "financial
difficulty" they claim to be
experiencing.
These are all lies used to try to make easy money from an unsuspecting victim.
The sad truth is, for every real profile you see on the internet, there are numerous false ones pretending to be your perfect
mate and using photographs stolen from modelling or social networking sites.

Internet romance scams and other related crimes are affecting and ruining lives
throughout the world.

The best weapon against this crime is education.
The more you are educated in the way the
scams work, the harder it is for these
scammers to make money and the more
scammers that can be put out of business.
