Published

A Nigerian couple have been arrested in Indian for allegedly stealing from bank ATMs.

The Samata Nagar police on Tuesday, May 14, said the couple – identified as Isaiah Ogunleye Seyi, 34, and Rosy Colin Warri, 37 – allegedly steal data and pin numbers of customers at ATM’s in different locations by inserting a skimmer and micro cameras in order to create clone cards.

The Nigerian couple would then withdraw that cash and also go shopping around India and countries overseas.

The duo used the skimmer machine and micro camera in order to steal data from the ATM cards which people would use during withdrawal of money at an ATM centre. They would later create a clone card from the data accumulated and would withdraw cash as well as shop.

A complaint was immediately filed at the local Samta Nagar police station by the bank authorities.

“They had placed a skimmer and micro-camera at a Yes Bank ATM kiosk in Thakur village. After a customer approached police claiming that he had seen a skimmer attached to the ATM, we started investigations,” said senior inspector Raju Kasbe, Samta Nagar police station.

The police formed four teams and posted them outside the ATM kiosk. Two cops, dressed as guards, took charge of the kiosk and stood at the door, while the others stayed not too far in civvies. Around 2am on Sunday, Seyi walked into the kiosk. Minutes later, he stepped out looking confused and as the police closed in, he tried to flee in an auto. When the police followed him, he jumped out of the auto and tried to flee on foot. Cops nabbed him after a kilometre-long chase.

“We chased him down after he had run over a kilometre” he added.

Seyi told the police about the involvement of his girlfriend, who too was arrested.

During their interrogation, it was revealed that Seyi came to Mumbai on a business visa while Colin had visited the city in order to undergo some treatments.

The couple was booked under provisions of IPC for cheating, besides the Information Technology Act. The police said the couple initially refused to cooperate.

“They said they could not speak Hindi or English. We even got an interpreter,” said senior inspector Kasbe. The duo also pretended they had nothing to do with the crime.

The police have recovered two mobiles, three inoperative debit cards for cloning, a skimmer and a microcam. Bank officials told the police that data of at least 25 customers had been stolen.

“We are probing if the couple has been booked for similar crimes in the past. They have been sent to police custody till May 17.” said the official.
