Internet Fraud:Court Jails Man 2 Years For Internet Love Scam


Justice Kudirat Jose  of the Lagos State High Court, Ikeja yesterday convicted and sentenced a 25 year old man, Ibobo Frank alias James Simmons to two years imprisonment for defrauding two American women of various sums of money by posing as their white lover.

Frank, who was arraigned before the court by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on a two-count charge of possession of documents containing false pretence, pleaded guilty to the charge.

The EFCC counsel, Ade Adebayo had told the judge that the commission received a petition from “a concerned Nigerian”, who refused to disclose his identity, that a group of small boys living at different apartments located  at Westwood Estate, Lekki, Ajah, Badore in Lagos, were living far beyond their means of livelihood.”

Adebayo also stated that after carrying out preliminary investigation, some EFCC operatives swooped on Westwood Estate on January 7, and arrested Frank.

The lawyer further disclosed that at the time of the arrest Frank had in his possession, with intent to defraud, email conversations sent between September 24 and December 18, 2014, containing false information wherein he represented himself as a white man to one Nancy Rooley.

He said Frank was also found in possession of email conversations sent between December 15 and 27  “containing a false pretence wherein he  represented himself as James Simmons, a white man purportedly in love with one Shirley Davis.”c
