It is funny what some people do to survive in foreign countries. Some go as far as duping innocent individuals of their hard earned money.
Such was the case of this 33-year-old Nigerian man, Ernest Usunobun, who has been arrested by the Thane police in Gurugram, India. He was reported to have duped women with claims of love.
In April, a 40-year-old woman reported him to the police claiming she was cheated of Rs 3.59 lakh. Ernest had assumed the identity of one Adinath P and approached her on a matrimonial website.
According to Thane police: “After two weeks of talking to her, he claimed he was coming to Mumbai from Canada. He later said he was at Delhi Airport and needed to exchange $40,000, but he did not have the Indian currency to pay the tax for the same. He then asked her to send the required amount, which was Rs 3.59 lakh. Once he got the money, he switched off his mobile phone and did not reply to the woman’s messages. So, she registered a case with the Kasarwadavli police station and accordingly the cyber cell started the investigation.”

However, the Deputy Commissioner of Police Sandeep Bhajibhakre disclosed that they got the login details of the matrimonial website.
He said: “He was arrested on August 9, around 9.30pm. We also found a Honda Civic, which he bought from the woman’s cash. He had two forged passports and one original. When we checked his phone, we found that he was in the process of cheating more women. We contacted the women and informed them about him. He is in custody now and we are checking how many women he has cheated in the past. More accused are expected to be arrested, as there is a complete chain of the people working in the process.”
The senior police inspector Sanjay Sawant said that: “We got the mobile number and other details and found him to be in Gurugram. With the help of local police, we reached his building and waited for him downstairs.”
