HYDERABAD: Sleuths of North Zone Task Force team apprehended a Nigerian, Morris Sharker at the Hyderabad airport for ‘Advance Fee Fraud’. The police laid their hands on Sharker while he was waiting to receive the money from a medico, B Muralidhar.
Police said that Sharker contacted Muralidhar over email. In the mail, he claimed that he was the Prince of Nigeria and needed a ‘responsible foreigner’ to transfer $27, 350 million after the ‘death of their father’ because they were facing a threat from their ‘wicked uncle’.
Soon, Muralidhar fell into the trap and was about to hand over some amount as ‘advance fee’ to Sharker when he was arrested at the airport.
How the scam operates: The ‘Advance Fee Fraud’ is running since early 1980’s under successive governments of Nigeria. The victim receives an unsolicited fax, e-mail or letter containing either a money laundering or other illegal proposal.
Later, the victim is asked to pay up an advance fee of some sort like ‘advance fee’ or ‘transfer tax’.
The Nigerian scam is the third to fifth largest industry in Nigeria and the victims have a little recourse in the matter. Money stolen in ‘419 operations’ is never recovered.
The police said that Sharker did not have any identity card or a passport.
Muralidhar is studying in Kakatiya Medical College, according to a press release.
