By The Assam Tribune

HYDERABAD, July 28 - Two Nigerian men and a woman from Nagaland have been arrested in Delhi by Hyderabad Police for allegedly duping three city-based women to the tune of Rs 75 lakh through matrimonial websites.

The two Nigerian men � Bob alias James and Bawo Hilary � and Leniya Magh, who belongs to Kohima, were arrested by the Cyber Crime Police in Delhi and brought here on transit remand recently, Hyderabad police said.

According to police, Bob had put up his fake profiles on different matrimonial sites. Posing as a rich man, he used to contact rich women and software engineers from India and proposed them for marriage.

�He used to lure women by introducing himself as a rich man and being in a good profession. Later, he used to inform the ladies that he was sending some expensive parcels to them,� police said.

At that stage, Leniya would come into the picture and introduce herself as a Customs officer or an IMF personnel.

She used to ask the victims to deposit money as Custom tax and to obtain anti-terrorist certificate towards getting the parcel.

�The victims used to deposit money accordingly and got cheated,� police said.

This way, the gang members cheated three women of Rs 48 lakh, Rs 7 lakh and Rs 20 lakh in separate cases, the release added. Police also found that Bob had cheated several people in connection with SMS lottery fraud. � PTI
