Nigerian, 2 women held over Internet love scam

GEORGE TOWN: Police have detained two local women and a Nigerian student for their alleged involvement in a love scam via the Internet.
The three were picked up by state Commercial Crime Division officers in Prangin Mall here at 1.30pm on Sunday.
Commercial Crime Division chief Assistant Commissioner Roslee Chik said the two women had allowed the Nigerian to use their savings accounts to deposit money given to him by his victims.
Roslee said the arrests were the result of intensive investigations following the detention of 11 Nigerians and three other locals on the mainland on June 18.
The Nigerians, many of whom are students of private colleges here, normally socialised with unsuspecting women through chat rooms on the Internet.
From there, they hoodwinked their victims into believing they had run into financial difficulties and could not continue to pay their college fees.
They would then furnish the bank accounts of the locals whom they had recruited as their syndicate members.
Roslee said initial investigations showed the locals were lured by the high commissions given to them each time money was deposited into their accounts.
To avoid suspicion, the Nigerians often asked the locals to close their accounts after a few transactions.
"Although they often skip classes, the Nigerians ensured their fees were paid each semester."
