    A Nigerian Returns $32,000 To Woman Scammed By Yahoo BoysSACM

    A US-based Nigerian man identified as @theblackmentor on Instagram has done a heroic deed by returning $32,000 to an aged American woman who was scammed by yahoo boys.

    According to him, he received the money in his business account, but rather than give it to the scammers, he traced the victim and drove for 7 hours to return the money to the rightful owner.

    In a video uploaded to his @theblackmentor_’s Instagram page on Wednesday, Nantomah, standing by the woman whom he identified as “Leen”, explained how he prevented a Nigerian cyber-crime syndicate from extorting her.

    Nantomah claimed that the cyber-fraudsters had tricked Keen into transferring $32,000 to his business account, with the mind that he would send them the money.

    He said that he had involved the police and embarked on a three-hour drive from Wisconsin to Indiana in a bid to locate Keen and help return her money.

    Nantomah wrote as the caption to the uploaded video. (SCAM)

    “Today, Wednesday, April 28, 2021, I drove 7 hours back and forth to expose a scam syndicate from Nigeria who defrauded this woman $32,000 of her life savings. They defrauded got the money and sent it into my bank account. I refused to remit it to them but took out time to drive from Wisconsin to Indiana to look for the rightful owner of the money after I had involved the police,”

    It appears that Nantomah was intended to serve as a “picker,” a term for strategic middle-men contacts for “Yahoo boys”, who are sometimes residents in the United States or other countries where victims reside. In many cases, pickers could be unaware of their role in the rip-off scheme until they receive money in their bank account.

    When asked by one Instagram user how the scammers had gotten hold of his business account, Nantomah said, “They pretended they wanted to do business with my Nigerian business partner who gave it to them without my consent”.
