Nigerians, Cambodian charged over online scam

Recommended Posts

Phnom Penh Municipal Court on Saturday charged two Nigerian men and a Cambodian woman over online scams committed since 2004. Court spokesman Y Rin, who declined to name the accused, yesterday said they were charged with fraud with aggravating circumstances and face up to five years in jail each if convicted. They are now in prison pending trial. National Police spokesman Lieutenant General Chhay Kim Khoeun yesterday said that cybercrime police detained the accused along with two Pakistani men and another Cambodian woman last week following a complaint from a victim.

. .

“Only the two Nigerian men and a Cambodian woman were sent to court and the others were freed because they were not involved in the scam,” he said. Lieutenant General Chea Pov, the Interior Ministry’s Anti-Cyber Crime Department director, confirmed the arrests yesterday. “This crime is not new,” he said. “They use the same old tricks to cheat vulnerable people who still do not understand that their messages are scams.”
