Interpol arrest Nigerian man in Sandton. See how he scammed women of US12 million

A Nigerian national James Aliyu was arrested at his house at an upmarket Sandton estate. 

He was on Interpol's most wanted list after he scammed hundreds of women through online romance scams. 

He reportedly netted over US$12 million. 

He was reportedly living a luxurious lifestyle in Sandton. Prior to his arrest, he had been on the run for six years. 

Sources claimed Aliyu has allegedly been in contact with several major convicted and suspected fraudsters from around the world and that he is considered a major player.

He is also believed to be part of an international crime syndicate. Some of the people from his network of criminals have already been arrested in the United States.

Among the fleet of luxury vehicles he allegedly bought with the proceeds of fraud were a Porche Cayenne, a Mercedes C220d and a Mercedes-Benz G Class luxury SUV. His social media profiles also depict him on luxury island resorts and luxury holidays in Dubai and the US.

Interpol surely is doing it's work.
