You see as an investor, you need to ‘shine your eyes’ very well, when you want to invest.
It is so that you don’t fall into the nets of fraudsters and fake investment merchants. The intent is always to defraud innocent investors.
Now, a couple, Emmanuel Dike and Ugochi Eziaku Dike may be on their way to the prison if they are unable to prove their innocence beyond every reasonable doubt.
The couple were arraigned by the Port Harcourt Zonal Command of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, (EFCC).
The allegation preferred against this couple is that of a 500 million Naira investment fraud.
According to information, the EFCC charged the suspect with crimes bordering on conspiracy, obtaining money under false pretense and conversion of funds.
The couple scammed one Captain Chukwuemeka Stanley Ikeri, and his company- Clipboard Office Superstores Limited of 500 million Naira in an investment fraud.
According to the EFCC, the couple told Captain Stanley Ikeri to invest in a business with huge returns.
They had told him he would gain 10% of his investment in a very short period of time.
Upon handing the sum of ₦500 million to the couple, they converted the money for personal use.
However, the court has ordered that they be remanded in the Port Harcourt Correctional Facility.
They will be there until January 30, 2024, when case will be heard.
