More US women fall victim to romantic love scam

16 January 2015, 10:07Okoro Chinedu

Lagos - Yet another United States woman has fallen victim to a love scam initiated by a local fraudster, it emerged.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission reported it had recovered US$23 886 for Jolanta Kasza, based in New York.

She was allegedly fleeced $64 000 by a suspected Nigerian Fraudster, Ndekwu Jindu (alias Dr Daniel Coffman) in the scam.

Kasza allegedly met Coffman online in June 2012, and the fraudster introduced himself as self employed Caucasian  pharmacist.

Impressed by the profile, Kasza is said to have fallen  in love with both agreeing to get married.

According to her, in the course of the affair, the suspect at different times requested for money under various guise.

Before she realised that she was dealing with a con artist,  she had  lost the money.

She consequently petitioned the EFCC, which through discreet investigation recovered $23 886.

The agency said it was in the process of repatriating the fund to the victim.

Earlier this week, EFCC said it had helped an American woman, Margaret Sanders, recover $2 000 she had been swindled by a Nigerian in a love scam.
