American forensic expert, Gar Warner has congratulated the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on the arrest of a Dubai-based Nigerian big boy, Mustapha Ismaila, aka Mompha.
According to Warner’s bio on Twitter, he is a director of research in computer forensics with expertise in cybercrime, malware and phishing, and spam.
We earlier reported that Mompha was arrested for a fraud case of $5 million (N1.8 billion).
Reacting to his arrest, the computer director expressed his excitement on the popular micro-blogging platform, noting that another Nigerian big boy, Hushpuppi, is next.
According to him, the report of Mompha’s arrest is great news, noting that he is a top ten Business Email Compromise (BEC) scammer and criminal who hides with his money in Dubai.
Warner pointed at Mompha’s lifestyle on his Instagram page as evidence to his point. According to him, his account on the photo-sharing app is a testimony to the scale of his criminal earnings.
The computer expert explained that the reason why he commented on Mompha’s arrest was that the huge money stolen from the US is often through BEC and internet scams.
Stating that BEC is a West African crime, Warner said he is not stereotyping the country. He explained that he is happy to have had great students from Nigeria in the United States of America’s computer forensics program.
If you aren’t a big follower of West African crime, you won’t understand how HUGE this news is! #Mompha is a “Top Ten” #BEC (Business Email Compromise) scammer / criminal who mostly hides with his money in Dubai. Well done, @officialEFCC! https://t.co/g63TlVefJB
