This is another incident that reveals why you should be careful on the Internet. A British woman fell prey to a phishing scam and lost her £1million life savings.
The victim unwittingly handed over her personal details to fraudsters after receiving a bogus bank notification email.
Tamer Abdelhamid, the fraudster who stole the personal data then sold the info to Nigerian national, Rilwan Oshodi. A 26 year old woman from Sierra Leone used the data to change the bank details by pretending to be the victim.
Detectives seized Oshodi's computer during a raid on his home with details of more than 11,000 credit cards, according to DailyMail report.
The fraudsters purchased cheeseburgers, high-end computers, gold with the stolen money. They are facing jail for their roles in the scam.
