SCAM NEWS: Nigerian Internet Fraudster Oyintonbra Tombrown Sentenced To 66 Years In Jail
Court Justice Nnamdi Dimgba of the Federal High Court, Asaba has sentenced an internet fraudster Tonwerigha Oyintonbra Tombrown to 66 years imprisonment without an option of fine.
Tombrown was jailed Tuesday for defrauding one Izabela Glogowska to the tune of ( €55,000) Fifty-Five Thousand Euros under the pretext of paying it into her Perfect Money online account.
The convicted fraudster had pleaded not guilty upon arraignment by the Port Harcourt Zonal Office of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission in Federal High Court, Asaba, Delta State, on November 9, 2016.
He was prosecuted on thirty-three count charge, bordering on impersonation and obtaining money by false pretense. However, at the resumed hearing on the matter on February 13, 2020, he switched gear and pleaded guilty to all the charges.
One of the charges reads: “That you Tonweirigha Oyintonbra Tombrown (alias Michael Freeman, Yoshinaka corporation) on or about the 8th day of May 2015, at Warri, Delta State, within the jurisdiction of this honorable court, with intent to defraud, did present yourself as one Michael Freeman a famous online trader and obtained the sum of (€5800) Five Thousand Eight Hundred Euros from Izabela Glogwoska under the false pretense that you were going to pay the said sum into Izabela Glogwoska’s Perfect Money account, a pretense you knew to be false, and thereby committed an offense contrary to Section 1(1) (a) of the Advance Fee Fraud and Other Related Offences Act 2006 and punishable under Section 1(3) of the said Act.”
Prosecuting counsel, A.I Arogha reviewed the facts of the case and urged the court to convict him accordingly.
Justice Dimgba convicted and sentenced the defendant to two years imprisonment on each of the thirty-three count charges without an option of fine. The sentence is, however, to run concurrently from August 11, 2018, the date the convict was taken into custody.
The judge further ruled that the EFCC should remit to the victim of the fraud, the sum of €30,475, being part of the proceeds of crime, which the convict had returned through the Commission in the course of investigation and prosecution of the case.

How Do You Properly Report Scammers?
It is essential that law enforcement knows about scams & scammers, even though there is nothing (in most cases) that they can do.
Always report scams involving money lost or where you received money to:
- Local Police – ask them to take an “informational” police report – say you need it for your insurance [use caution, not advisable in all countries]
- Your National Police or FBI «www.IC3.gov» OR from within the U.S. «tips.FBI.gov»
- The Scars Worldwide Reporting Network «HERE» or on «www.Anyscam.com» [available anywhere]
This helps your government understand the problem, and allows law enforcement to add scammers on watch lists worldwide.
