ILLICIT AND FRAUDULENT MANNER THROUGH WHICH CRIMINALS OPERATE AND THEIR MODUS OPERANDI

Share This



This is to inform the general public especially business men and women on the illicit and fraudulent manner through which criminals operate and their modus operandi, series of petitions have been written to the *Assistant Inspector General of Police, Zone 2 Command Headquarters, Onikan Lagos* that fraudsters now sought business men and women (who deal in sales of building materials, etc) who advertise their goods through various social media platforms and also sought for potential buyers of such goods.

According to SP Hauwa Idris Adamu,Zonal Police Public Relations Officer, Zone 2 Command, Onikan Lagos, The criminals will contact dealers who advertise such goods on social media platforms and act like genuine buyers while they order for goods in large quantity. They also act like genuine dealers to their prospective victims and give about 3% to 5% discount in order to entice their prospective victims.

Upon indication of interest, the prospective buyer will be lured into making payment. Having made payment, the fraudsters will then give instruction to the dealer on the other hand to load the quantity of good requested by the victim with the pretext that payment will be made and confirmed on delivery before offloading of the goods.
When it has been confirmed that goods have arrived destination, the fraudster then goes incommunicado while the driver will be the one having issues with the victim who already made payment and has been expecting delivery of goods paid for; this is always done mostly on Fridays to prevent any kind of banking system retrieval.

Based on the above, the Command is sending this to the general public as awareness; so, no one will fall victim of the antics of fraudsters who pretend as business clients while passing a very strict 
warning to all criminal minded groups or individuals to relocate from the Zone as they will not find it easy operating within the Zonal Command
