The Abuja Zonal Office of EFCC, on Thursday, April 25, 2019, arrested four suspects; Ajiero Onyeka, Clement Peter, Mustapha Zubiri, Agbo Austine Taylor for allegedly attempting to carry out a fraudulent Bank Wire Transfer to the tune of $200,000.

According to the report by EFCC, a team of the anti-graft operatives swooped down on Agbo Austine and other suspects as they were about to transfer the said amount from the account of an unsuspecting foreigner into a domiciliary account in Nigeria.

The Commission was tipped off when the suspects were sourcing for domiciliary account number which they will use to receive the money.

Bank Wire Transfer fraudsters have a practice of using other people’s domiciliary account to receive fraudulent money with the promise of giving the account holder a commission from the money.

In some other instances, some of the account holders will be kept totally in the dark as to the source of the fund.


When the transaction is completed, the account holder will become the hunted criminal, while the main perpetrator will disappear without traces.
