Canadian visa scam EFCC

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, on Friday, March 17, 2023 arrested one Enock Ifeoluw Ogungbamigbe, an alleged serial visa scammer who specializes in duping Nigerians desperate for the Canadian visa.

He was arrested after allegedly feeding on the desperation of Nigerians to migrate to Canada either to work or further their education, through fake visa and job offers, the EFCC said.

The EFCC in a statement issued by its spokesman, Wilson Uwujaren said that the 32-year old who owns a Garden in Mpape, a suburb of Abuja, was picked up at Transcorp Hotel, Abuja by operatives of the Commission, when he responded to an appointment to procure a visa for an applicant intending to migrate to Canada. Unknown to him, that it was a bait.

His arrest followed a petition by a victim who lost N5million to the suspect as processing fees for Visa to Canada. The suspect had also promised the victim a job upon arrival in Canada. But he only delivered fake visas to the victims and all efforts to recover the money were futile.

The EFCC said that the suspected Canadian visa scammer would be charged to court as soon as the investigation is concluded over matter.
