The Police Special Fraud Unit, Ikoyi, Lagos State, said it has busted a syndicate which specialised infiltrating customers’ bank accounts and harvesting data for fraud purposes.

The Public Relations Officer of the Police Special Fraud Unit (PSFU), a Superintendent of Police (SP), Eyitayo Johnson, while confirming the incident, explained that on the 2nd of November, 2022, the Federal High Court, Lagos; granted the prayers of Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) Daniel Apochi, Esq. of PSFU for the reversal of N28 million being part of N30 million transferred to UBA Account Number 1013160804 (Account Name: Diemo Dinolarge Onokpite). The Account Holder is the Managing Director of Dino-Large Limited and a member of a Cyber/Advance Fee Fraud syndicate that hacked into the computers of a New-Generation Deposit Money Bank and successfully harvested customers’ data.

Johnson said: “The harvested information was used to generate cloned e-mails through which fake instructions for the transfer of N28 million to the account of Diemo Dinolarge was given. Operatives of the Unit, while utilizing its existing synergy with the victims’ and suspects’ Banks, swiftly placed Post-No-Debit (PND) on the account while the Federal High Court was approached to reverse the money. The sum of N2 million had been dissipated before the PND was emplaced while the remaining N28million was recovered by the Order of the Court. Diemo Dinolarge who acts as “Picker” for the syndicate was tracked and arrested as the investigation continues to apprehend other members of his syndicate.”
