Two Nigerian nationals were arrested in New Delhi for allegedly luring about a dozen of women through matrimonial and social networking sites and prompt them to transfer money into fake bank accounts in the name of customs duty on gifts they planned to send them.
Earlier also, similar cases were reported and with a wide news coverage in New Delhi, in which the modus operandi was the same. It appears that social network, especially the matrimonial sites have become happy hunting ground for finding easy prey to fulfil their criminal intentions. Joint commissioner of crime police Ravindra Yadav reported that they had arrested Ozoemena Micheal Izu(29) and Ekwenze Friday(33) and seized them from three mobile phones, laptops and a register containing details about several of their victims. It was found that the duo was residing in Mahavir Enclave and have been living in India without valid visas.
