EFCC Arrests Bank Security, Two Others for ATM Fraud in Makurdi

Operatives of the Makurdi Zonal Office of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC have arrested three suspected fraudsters who specialise in defrauding unsuspecting members of the public by pretending to help them operate ATM machines.

The suspects, 36-year-old Michael Damhindi, (who is a security guard with an old generation bank), Chidi Emmanuel Aniekwe (32), and Terhemba Iorhen (35) would station themselves around ATM machines and ready to help bank customers who have difficulties actualising their transactions in ATM machines and in the process harvest their victim’s vital account details for their criminal purposes.

Investigations also reveal that they fraudulently obtain some of their victim’s vital bank details through SIM swap.

They were arrested in the North Bank area of Makurdi, the Benue State capital. Items recovered from them included one Mazda Millennia car, 31 ATM cards of different banks, bearing different names, 19 phones, two laptops, 16 starter SIM packs, SIM cards of various networks, one Glo modem, a flash drive and fake currency notes.

They would be changed to court as soon as investigations are concluded.
