Nigerian man arrested in India over black dollar scam


Authorities in India have arrested Nigerian national over his involvement in Black Dollar scam.
According to reports from India, the Nigerian, Gabriel Blessing Efe, was arrested while trying to travel to Kolkata and Bhubaneswar on forged documents.
A black dollar scam is a trick where con artists attempt to obtain money by duping their victim and persuading them that a bundle of banknote-sized paper are actually currency notes that have been dyed to avoid detection, and can be brought back to original dollars if treated with a particular chemical.




DNA India had reported that the forged document Efe held identified him as Mike Danny Efe.
“A Nigerian national who arrived at the Delhi airport to fly to Kolkata via Bhuvneshwer by an Indigo flight 6E 701, was intercepted based on a tip-off. On screening of his luggage, a suspicious bundle of papers which were in the size of currency notes and a bottle of the chemical were recovered from him,” said DCP IGI, Sanjay Bhatia.
Indian authorities said Efe entered the Asian country in 2012 for the first time and went back to Nigeria in 2013, returning in 2015 on a business visa and stayed in different cities including Mumbai and Delhi.

“He further disclosed that one of his Nigerian friends, Tonny, who is in Kolkata, asked him to bring dollar size bundles of papers along with a bottle of chemicals. These items were provided to Efe by another Nigerian national Oscar at New Delhi Railway Station and he was asked to deliver it to Tonny in Kolkata. He also said they were looking to dupe one businessman on the pretext of providing him US dollars




He also said they were looking to dupe one businessman on the pretext of providing him US dollars at cheap rates. They told the target that the dollars, which are in paper form, can be converted into original USDs, after a chemical wash,” said Bhatia.
The police recovered 14 bundles of currency size paper with each bundle containing 100 papers and one bottle of the chemical from the accused.
