The EFCC helped facilitate the return of $26,000 to Christine Brown, a British citizen who fell victim to internet fraud.

The EFCC’s spokesperson, Wilson Uwujaren, stated in Abuja that the Benin Zonal Command returned the money to the victim on Monday.

Brown thanked the Commission for helping her recover from losing her life savings to online fraudsters.

She had fallen prey to a romance scam by someone posing as John Barrowman, an American entertainer.

The fraudster, to whom she sent money via wire transfers, Bitcoin, and gift cards, deceived her.

Zonal Commander Kanu Idagu handed over the reclaimed funds and emphasized the Commission’s commitment to aiding fraud victims.

He urged caution online due to lurking fraudsters.
