Young Nigerian couple jailed in the UK for internet banking scam

Nigerian couple, 22 year old Aderoju Bammeke, (pictured left) and his girlfriend 20 year old Jessica Ogunyemi, (pictured right) have been jailed in the UK for being part of a Nigerian gang that hacked into the accounts of several people and stole thousands of pounds from them, Daily Mail UK reports
"The couple were part of a global internet banking scam which could have netted a phenomenal £19million after hacking the accounts of nearly 2,500 people. Aderoju and Jessica were the UK 'platform' for a Nigerian 'phishing' scam that made £41,000 in just two months.
The plot, masterminded by a gang in Nigeria, involved sending fake emails to customers of banks including Barclays and Halifax. The emails told recipients that their accounts had been hacked and asked them to complete a form with their log-in details. But when victims obliged, Bammeke stepped in and helped the gang log in to steal money.

Brazil 2014: FIFA World Cup Finals Draw

The 2014 FIFA World Cup draw took place in Brazil today and Nigeria will play against Argentina, Iran and Bosnia-something...lol. Nigeria's opening game will be against Iran and even though Bosnia looks like it will be an easy game for us, the country is ranked higher than Nigeria in the world. They are ranked 21st, while Nigeria is ranked 36th, but I'm sure we'll qualify alongside Messi's Argentina.

Dear LIB readers: My new boss is my wife's ex

From a male LIB reader
I just found out that my new boss is the man my wife dumped a few years ago to marry me. The man was planning to marry her and saw her through her university days financially and also supported her family. We met during our NYSC, fell in love and got married shortly after. My woman handled the discharging of her ex codedly. Now 4 years into our marriage, there's a big issue. I just got this really good job and my direct boss happens to be the man my wife dumped for me.
He knows who I am because he confronted me back when my wife left him for me, but since I started this job, he hasn't said anything to me but I noticed he excludes me from most of the activities that concern staff and I suspect he's trying to sabotage me. He hasn't done anything yet, I'm just worried that he has bad plans for me. Should I quit or should I wait to see what he's up to? I don't look forward to going to work at all.

LindaIkejiblog.com.ng is not me! Don't let them scam you please!!

Quite a number of people have used my name to open blogs, which is not right but okay, but when you start using my name to dupe people, then it's a problem.

There's a blog called www.lindaikejiblog.com.ng/ that has been pretending to be me and duping people of thousands of naira. The person is collecting money from people with a promise to post their material on my blog. When you call him he says he's Linda Ikeji's business manager and sends you an account number to pay money into. People pay him expecting to see their material on LIB but he posts it on that blog that has no readers. So far he's duped at least 3 people who have since contacted me wondering why their material has not been posted on my blog. God knows how many others he's duped.

I got someone to call him asking for advert rates, and while pretending to work for me, gave out his info. I do not know this guy. He does not work for me, and I have nothing to do with that blog.

His name is Chudi-Oji Chukwuka. His number is 08060565721. His account number is Chudi-Oji Chukwuka, 0044157183. GTBank. Please don't let yourself be scammed! Thanks.

End of public announcement! :-)

Meet the Hosts of Baileys Boutique: Stephanie and Veronica

Talking with them is another issue. Veronica is articulate and passionate about fashion and the industry. Stephanie is focused, cherry and playful.

One thing they do have in common is the passion to communicate to people and the Baileys Boutique Radio Show. Continue...
