Woman, five Nigerians held for online lottery fraud


The Hyderabad Cyber Crime police arrested six people with the help of the Mumbai police for duping a Hyderabad resident of Rs18.73 lakh by sending him a fraudulent email. The accused — five Nigerian men and an Indian woman — allegedly convinced the complainant that he had won a lottery of £7.5 lakh
The incident took place a few months ago, when the accused allegedly sent the complainant an e-mail stating he had won the cash prize. The mail stated that in case the complainant wanted to avail the money, he would need to deposit money in a bank account. The complainant deposited Rs18.73 lakh in the bank account number provided by the accused.
When the complainant did not receive the money even after a few months, he mailed the accused but there was no response. The complainant then registered a complaint with the Hyderabad Cyber Crime Police station.
The police tracked down the location of the accused to Mumbai. A team from the Hyderabad Cyber police along with the Crime Investigation Unit (CIU), of the Mumbai Crime Branch arrested the six on Sunday. They were later handed over to the Hyderabad police after getting a four-day transit remand. The accused have been identified as Oazee Collins, 32, Edoja Kennedy, 34, Inneah Amadin, 32, Charles Omage, 32, Emmanual Uyi, 31, and Pooja Karmokar, 20.
The police recovered 25 mobile phones, seven laptops, an ATM card, a bank passbook, six data cards, four passports and Rs 57,000 in cash.
