Emeka Akanike

Emeka Akanike, a person intimately connected with some of the earliest blackmail stories coming out of Abuja, is very much back in the business of blackmail and theft. Emeka does not appear to spend much time running his company Aquanike Nigeria Ltd since he is often traveling between Benin where his mother resides (Off Ihama Road), and Abuja. Many of his old friends have moved on and found real jobs but Emeka still recruits and trains younger ones to use as bait. Since we know he and his partners in crime read this blog, be warned, we are looking to obtain pictures from your coming wedding for publication here. We know your dry boutique at Adesuwa Road, Benin crashed but there is no excuse for your turning to crime to fund your wedding.

How They Caught… The Ghana dating scammers

This should be of some interest. Watch the video and learn from BBC Crimewatch.

Are you being scammed?

If you think you’ve been a victim of fraud, you can contact Action Fraud – the UK’s national fraud reporting centre. You will get a crime reference number and information on victim support. Action Fraud also offers information on how to protect yourself against becoming a victim. Find Action Fraud at http://www.actionfraud.org.uk or call 0300 123 2040. Please note that the BBC is not responsible for the content of external sites.

SOCA also has these scam-busting tips for anyone considering using dating sites or singles columns:

Be suspicious of anyone you have not met in person asking you to send money abroad. Even a cheque for a small amount can provide fraudsters with your bank details and can be altered and used in other fraudulent ways.

Speak to them online via a webcam and ask yourself whether this is the same person you have been chatting to online or by email.

Tell someone trustworthy where you are going and plan regular contacts. Agree what they should do if you miss a contact.

Report incidents of actual or attempted frauds, kidnaps and extortion.

419 Investigation

Peter Zuma Myers aka Timmy Jones

Wanted: Peter Zuma Myers

The individual in the pictures is last known to have been using the aliases Peter Zuma Myers and Timmy Jones. He is currently active on bgclive.com as ‘gayintimmy‘ and on planetromeo.com as ‘peterluvmyers‘. He often claims to be of dual nationality (re his ‘British/American father’ or his ‘South African mother’), with parents either separated or one or both being deceased. His other stories involve his just recovering from an abusive relationship, or trouble with the law, passport/travel problems and variations thereof. His intention is to generate the sympathy and online romance necessary for his 419 scam to work. He has proved to have contacts in Nigeria, Ghana, and in different parts of the United Kingdom, who are willing and able to redirect the proceeds of his crime to him. He is a frequent presence on all the gay contact websites where he has been observed to spend many hours at ‘work’ switching identities as he actively pursues foreign contacts with his empty promises.

 

Below is a list of his known accomplices, though the veracity of their names (with the exception of Philip Andoh-Davies, who banks with Ecobank Ghana and provided his real banking information) cannot be ascertained at this time. An official investigation has been initiated with regard to the activities of this individual and his support network, and we would like to appeal for any information (even regarding casual contacts or chats) that would lead to an arrest. All information will be treated in confidence.
