FBI Arrest Nigerian Billionaire Over $11m Fraud



The Federal Bureau of Investigation have captured the Chief Executive Officer of Invictus Group, Obinwanne Okeke, for trick to submit PC extortion. 
 
Okeke, who made it into Forbes 'Africa's 30 Under 30 List in 2016', was captured by the FBI over $11m wire extortion after a record having a place with the CEO of Unatrac Holding Limited, a steel organization, was hacked. 
 
The suspect was asserted to have plotted with some different people to get to the CEO's PCs without authorisation, PMNews reports. 
 
As indicated by an oath marked by Marshall Ward, a Special Agent of FBI, delegates of Unatrac Holding Limited, reached the organization in the wake of encountering a false exchange of $11m from the organizations account through a traded off email. 
 
The sworn statement peruses, "Unatrac's Chief Financial Officer got a phishing email containing a web connect purportedly to the login page of the CFO's online email record facilitated by Microsoft Office365. 
 
"At the point when the CFO opened the connection, it rather drove him to a phishing site created to emulate the genuine Office365 login page. 
 
"Accepting the page to be genuine, he entered his login certifications, which were caught by an obscure interloper who controlled the parodied page. 
 
"Between April 6 and April 20, 2018, the interloper got to the CFO's record in any event multiple times, for the most part from Internet Protocol (IP) addresses in Nigeria." 
 
The report prompted an examination, which started in July 2018 after the FBI inspected the submitted records and inevitably prompted the capture of Okeke.
