INTERNATIONAL FRAUDSTER SWINDLED PENSIONERS OUT OF LIFE SAVINGS

CANNING TOWN, EAST LONDON; BOUNDS GREEN, NORTH LONDON An international fraudster swindled pensioners out of their life savings by telling them they had won millions of pounds on the lottery, the Old Bailey heard. Nigerian-born Frank Onyeachonam, 40, duped mainly elderly American victims out of hundreds of thousands of pounds in an 'advance fee' scheme, it is said. Letters were sent by a 'lottery agent' telling people they had won a life-changing prize in a foreign lottery and requesting a modest sum to release the funds. Believing they had a stroke of good fortune, victims were hooked into paying fees to release their 'winnings' through an agent who would demand 'activation fees' to release their cash.
