The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has arrested Queen Jonathan, a 24-year-old woman, in Oghara, Delta State, for alleged involvement in a Bitcoin scam.
Wilson Uwujaren, the commission’s spokesperson, said this in a statement on Tuesday.
The suspect was apprehended by men from the commission’s Benin Zonal office on Friday, according to Uwujaren.
According to him, the perpetrator used Instagram to pose as Sophia Rodriguez, a Bitcoin specialist, in order to defraud innocent victims.
An Infinix Hot 8 phone was among the things retrieved from her, according to him.
“The defendant was apprehended for defrauding innocent victims while posing as a bitcoin expert.
He said, “She has issued her statement and will be arraigned in court as soon as the investigation is over.”
