Men Who Defraud Car Dealers With Fake Cheques and Bank Alerts, Arrested!


Two men who specialise in duping car dealers in Lagos by issuing fake bank cheques and fake bank alerts, have been arrested.

The suspects were apprehended when one of their victims raised an alarm after he discovered that the transaction conducted with them was fraudulent. The suspects had reportedly succeeded in issuing fake bank alerts and stealing cars from dealers on several occasions, but they were nabbed yesterday.

According to Vanguard: The victim identified as Ifeanyi stated that he became suspicious of the transaction after he allegedly received bank transaction alert for the payment of the vehicle. He decided to follow his suspicion by confirming if the payment had reflected in his account from the bank only to be informed that no money was deposited in his account.

Another victim revealed how the suspects had been almost caught previously: “The last time it happened, the bank server was down so they just allowed them to go. Later we found out that it was a fake alert, God has exposed them today” he said. The suspects confessed to have succeeded with two vehicles sometime ago from the same New Way Park in Berger after being nearly lynched by some angry people.

The suspects are currently in police custody and the Lagos State Police spokesperson, SP Dolapo Badmos disclosed that the case is yet to be reported at the Kirikiri Police Division.
