An American lady who believed she had found love in the arms of a Nigerian Internet fraudster popularly called Yahoo-Yahoo, Jolanta Kasza, based would by now, be ruing her gullibility when the fast guy, Ndekwu Jindu, also known Dr Daniel Coffman, fleeced her of the sum of $64,000 (N11,881,600), money she transferred to him to ensure he moves to the United State to join her.
In a release by the Media and Publicity Unit of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, through the head of the unit, Wilson Uwujaren, the woman, after it dawned on her that she may have been duped, petitioned the anti-graft agency and they swung into action and recovered $23,886 for the New York-based Kasza.
The statement read:
“Jolanta Kasza was fleeced of $64,000 by a suspected Nigerian fraudster, Ndekwu Jindu (aka Dr Daniel Coffman) in a romance scam.
Kasza allegedly met Coffman online in June 2012, and the fraudster introduced himself as self-employed Caucasian pharmacist.
Impressed by the profile, Kasza fell in love, with both agreeing to get married.
In the course of the affair, the suspect, at different times, requested for money under various guises. Before the victim realised that she was dealing with a con artist, she had lost $64,000 to the fraudster.
She consequently petitioned the EFCC, which, through discreet investigation recovered $23,886. The agency is in the process of repatriating the fund to the victim.”
Meanwhile, Jindu is to be prosecuted by the agency once it concludes investigations.
