Nigerian Love Scammer And His Gang Nabbed In Bangkok

A Nigerian man who pretended to be a beautiful female American soldier on Facebook, has been arrested by Thailand authorities for internet romance fraud.





The Nigerian, 35, known as Antonio Jose Carlos or ‘Star Boy’ in his community, had been targeting lonely Thai men and defrauding them of their savings with promises of love.


According to reports from Thai News, Antonio Jose Carlos and his Thai girlfriend, 20-year-old Sukanya Sakaew, were caught at their apartment in the Chaengwattana area as a part of the government’s crackdown on foreign criminals. Police found six mobile phones and a few bank books at the apartment, which had a circulating fund of THB3 million (nearly US$92,000).


Police investigators said “Star Boy” was engaged in ongoing conversations with 38 middle-aged Thai men using a Facebook profile in which he presented himself as an American woman. It was unclear how much money he had managed to con out of them. Follow-up investigations yesterday ultimately saw the arrests of five other members of the so-called Star Boy gang,


The gang was said to have played on their victims’ desperate need for romance and tricked them into transferring money to its bank accounts. Some had built social media profiles to give the appearance of a luxurious lifestyle, then asked victims to invest in a business with them.


Police have charged the suspects with fraud and putting false information into a computer system that causes damages to others.
