BVN text message fraudsters
At last justice was served and punishment given to the BVN text message fraudsters.
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC yesterday secured the conviction of Innocent Clinton and Emmanuel Okanni before Justice Sa’ad Muhammad of the Gombe State High Court on a two-count charge bordering on conspiracy and theft.

Later, he received a text message purportedly from Diamond Bank instructing him to call a particular phone number as customer care in order to lodge his complaint.

Few minutes after complying, he received an alert that the sum of N864, 000.00 was transferred from his account into the convicts’ accounts.

Upon arraignment yesterday, the two men pleaded guilty to the charge and were accordingly convicted and sentenced to six months imprisonment each.

They however received the option of N30, 000 fine.
