A popular Nigerian big boy, Emanuel “Otunba Cash” Aneke, who is the CEO of Instanbul Entertainment in Nigeria has been nabbed recently alongside his gang members O. Popoola, AA Oyemade, AT Fajolu and BO Balogun in Turkey for $1.4million scam in Denmark.
They have all been nabbed and accused of hacking international companies’ emails, learning about their business partners and then using duplicate websites to fraud them.
According to a police source, the Danish police warned their Turkish counterparts through Interpol back in May that a Denmark-based Turkish company’s e-mail system was breached and more than $1.4 million, as well as fake invoices, were sent to a front company in Turkey.
It was disclosed the company paid some money into certain accounts in Turkey, and an investigation by Turkish Cybercrime Department led to arresting of Otunba Cash and his gang members including Turkish ED, ZI and N.M, whose companies were used as fonts.
Police raid at their luxury hotel led to the confiscating of 17 mobile phones, 15 sim cards, 3 flash memory, 4 computers, 1 memory card, $85k, €5k, 5 necklaces, 3 bracelets, 2 handcuffs, 2 rings, 1 earring, Rolex watch, numerous crime documents and a luxury car from the Nigerian fraudster.
