BVN scammers get 6 months jail term

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC on Thursday, had two men brought  before Justice Sa’ad Muhammad of the Gombe State High Court on two count charge bordering on conspiracy and theft. The duo, Innocent Uche Clinton and Emmanuel Okanni, both are from Orlu Ngaba Local Government Area of Imo State.

They specialize in scamming unsuspecting members of the public by sending text messages claiming to be from customer care of different Banks and telling the recipients that their transaction accounts were closed due to BVN issues and asked that they disclose their BVN in order to rectify the problem, thereby defrauding them.
