POLICE IN CANADA ARREST NIGERIAN MULTI MILLION DOLLAR FRAUD RING

Police in Toronto, Canada have arrested two Nigerians believed to be involved in a $10 million fraud ring.

The two fraudsters lived a “high-profile lifestyle of conspicuous consumption” supported by the proceeds of criminal activities, police announced on Tuesday.

“Thousands of individuals across the greater Toronto area have had their information compromised,” said Detective-Constable Mike Kelly. According to Mr. Kelly, unsuspecting victims have collectively lost an estimated $10 million.
