A 26 year-old man, Emmanuel Okorafor, has been arrested by the police for specializing in the act of defrauding POS operators in Lagos.
Okorafor was arrested yesterday evening in Ojota by men of the RRS. He was caught in an ATM fraud.
He confessed he started it three weeks ago.
According to him, he has been defrauding POS operators various sums of money.
He normally give them a figure in seven, which the operator would enter into his POS (N52,000:00).
Once the machine is handed to him to enter his PIN, he would cleverly delete two zeros (N5,200:00) before returning it to the operators.
With this, the operators pay him N52,000:00 while he is debited N5,200:00.
In his confession, he re-acted same fraud in five POS points yesterday around Ogudu GRA and Ojota before he was arrested in the evening.
As at yesterday, three POS operators said he played the same trick on them. His ATM matched that used in defrauding the victim.
Some of them said they have accused and sacked many of their attendants for stealing their money.
Investigations revealed that the ATM was used to collect various sums of money ranging from N52,000 to N5500 in many POS points.
NOTE: According to the police, Emmanuel Okorafor’s face is deliberately not covered so that his victims can identify him.
