EFCC arrest Nigerian man for duping 75 year old Dutch woman of €200k

A 31 year old Nigerian man, Adio Opeyemi Micheal (pictured above) has been arrested by the EFCC for duping a 75 year old dutch woman of €200,000 in an internet romance scam. Find the EFCC press statement below...
"For swindling a 75 year old woman of 200,000 Euros in a romance scam, a 31-year-old confidence trickster, Adio Opeyemi Michael, an indigene of  Owu LGA of Ogun state, has been arrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission EFCC. The victim, a certain Jeanet De Jonge, is a Dutch national." Continue...
Adio allegedly met the victim on the ‘Net log’ dating site and pretended to be a 41-year-old American citizen, working as a chef in a Nigerian restaurant and needs a wife. The profile attracted Jeanet and, in no time, began sending him money through Western Union and Money Gram.
"She was sending me money monthly, ranging from $800 to $900 from June 2012, through Western Union Money transfer and Money Gram to the extent that Western Union blocked her from sending money to me in Nigeria.  So she requested that I should go to London to enable her send me money there. I contacted a friend of mine in London called Osas Odiah, so that he can receive the money and send to me here in Nigeria. She first sent €2000 to my friend’s account in London, and later to my Keystone bank account, which was actually a Forex Trade account. We started using this account when we discovered that my friend was not remitting all the money sent by Jeanet to me,” the suspect revealed.
Investigations further revealed that the suspect collected the various sums under the pretext that he was going to use the money to perfect his travel plans and obtain the required documents that would enable him travel to Holland to join or visit Jeanet. But his inability or refusal to honour the invitation from Jeanet prompted the petition to EFCC.
The suspect will be arraigned in court as soon as investigation is concluded.

men, this war against yahoo yahoo, smh, it's a lost battle. And I blame our society for this. You see a young chap living in a big house, wearing fanciful wears, carrying small small girls, riding hummer jeep today , range rover, ford tomorrow, you see him everyday, he does nothing throughout the day, maybe puts on generator at night. The same cycle continues, he does nothing, you see all these, and you dont ask question, you drink beer, pop champagne with him, you club with him, even f**k him and you don't ask questions "Oga where is this money coming from? What do you do for a living? Where is your ID?"

Well there goes the answer. If we dont ask questions, the answers would come out somehow. Our society should ask questions. It starts from our places of abode, workplaces. Let's eradicate yahoo yahoo (419) as it gives our country a bad name else we wont love to be identified as such in foreign lands.

This oyinbo people are very stupid. First of all what are you doing on a dating site at your age and falling for a 41yr old looking for a wife, an American citizen working in a Nigerian restaurant in Nigeria really!!! common woman you are not wise at all does that story sound credible to you and to top it off you are from an EU country and it has been the law for years that American citizens can travel anywhere in the EU countries and vis versa with a 90 days visa waiver so he could have come to visit you and you would have saved a lot of money on his supposed travel plans. I take it you do not travel outside of your country.

I don't see the crime here. He did not steal from her. She gave him money because of love. This happens everyday in obodo Nigeria but is not seen as a crime but because the thirsty bitch is white they are harassing young men with toasting skills. Even the authorities in obodo oyiwo do not consider this a scam. Nothing was stolen.

You this lame "Anonymous" up there talking about Osas and his family, you must be very very dumb. And I am very sure you know you are chatting shit! How dare you just pick someone out of the blue and bring him and his family into this? First of all this very guy that got caught does not even know Osas from Adam, and Osas does not even have a clue as to who he is. Apart from that the media blows things out of proportion most times, people make up stories and try to implicate others or pick on easy targets. And to be honest Osas has nothing what so ever to do with this. For fuck sake Osas has been good since the whole scandal which was ages ago and he paid the price for that and he is doing well for himself and staying out of trouble. For you sick Anonymous slagging him and his family off like ths without tangible fact or truth is very pathetic so to speak. There are people who kill, steal, lie, prostitute.. Allll sort of shady things to get money or in general and no sin is bigger than the other, but if you get caught then it becomes a different issue so who the fuck are you to point fingers or judge? Am very aware you know the family so well and you definitely got an issue with them if not you won't be on here running your foul mouth like a broken chatterbox. Be very careful what you say or else you get in real trouble in life. Osas is innocent so leave the dude alone. Silly Nigerians always in a rush to conclude and judge without fact.

Anonymous said...

dear Linda this is for you, you are a grown woman and you are doing well for yourself by the special grace of God but please, be very careful with things like this. I am not soliciting for anyone or any evil, the fact is Osas Odia has absolutely NOTHING to do with this. Years ago when he got in trouble he served his time and so far he has been good and moved on. You know these things are things people do everyday, Infact it's become a normal issue in our society. Most of our boys and even fathers do it but if you get caught then it's hard to clear your name. Osas has gone through a lot I must say and for this silly yoruba boy to mention his name in this case is a shame because Osas is just an easy target based on the fact that he has got a record. Do you think he would be this stupid to put himself out there again? Common! It's commons sense to know that. How are you so sure about things you post? You hurt a lot of people I swear Linda! At least do proper research on things lie this. Ok imagine how the name was spelled Osas Odiah" Odia with a "h". That's not him. He might be talking about someone else not Osas Odia himself, I mean a lot of people bear that name everywhere so please take ths off, it isn't nice at all. You don't try to make a living at the expense of people's lives. Politicians loath, kill, steal yet they do not hunt then down. Aren't we all hypocrites? I can vouge for Osas Odia that does not know this Yoruba boy from nowhere and he does not have a hand in this issue. He has nothing to do with anyone in nigeria or any Yoruba boy. I have discussed this issue with Osas and he feels really upset about this. This probably saw his name on the Internet and decided to mention him. Ok do you know that Osas's case was not even what it was? He was a victim! All he did was give account to the actual guys who did the job and that was it! And he went down for that silly mistake. He was approached and he fell for it. He does not go about defrauding people or swindling so to speak. He is my very very good friend and I really feel for him because he has paid his price and moved on ages ago but you bring him on here again and again. Why????? Give the guy a break Linda! Very quiet guy under the watchful eyes of the system you think would be so stupid to do this? How? In uk? Nahhhhh..... I wish this Yoruba dude can say all these face to face with Osas. They have NEVER crossed part before I can promise you that babes. Do you research please.

Every Body in Nigeria is a 149 even people that commented in this blog. EFCC,POLICE, Politicians etc are all 419 in This country. This boy you caught is even straight by attempting to help 75 yrs old woman. If the woman had come to Nigeria the boy will be servicing the woman with his young spam and the woman will enjoy it and nobody will hear it. The woman sent money to his husband that is this guy and she was not under force to send this monies. Please you EFCC should allow this young man go and do better things with your lives. Go look for Deziani Ngozi Okonjo, Jonathan Bad luck etc and live this boy to be free.
