Two Nigerian men have been charged to court in Singapore on Tuesday following their alleged involvement in internet love scam.

According to local news reports who identified the culprits as Oladayo Opeyemi Awolola, 34, and Gbolahan Ayobami Awolola, 37, they were apprehended by Malaysian authorities in Kuala Lumpur last month and sent to Singapore on Monday.

It was gathered that the syndicate lure their victims into parting with cash after they feign romantic interest in them and it is a growing concern in the city-state with police reporting 660 internet love scam cases last year.

According to a police statement, the fraudsters allegedly recruited two Singaporean women “as money mules to receive criminal proceeds linked to internet love scams in Singapore” between 2017 and 2018. The women, however, received Sg$85,700 ($63,000) during the period after which they turned over the sum to syndicate members in Malaysia.

The police noted that, it is the first time that suspects based overseas and involved in internet love scams have been arrested and sent to Singapore for prosecution and if convicted the Nigerians involved could be jailed for up to five years each and fined as well.
