Once celebrated Forbes Africa 30 Under 30 entrepreneur, Obinwanne Okeke, well known as Invictus Obi has revealed how he got initiated into fraud after he got convicted in 2019.
According to Invictus he got initiated into fraud after meeting with a friend who was living very comfortably. Although he didn’t disclose the name of his friend, Obi revealed that his friend taught all the basics of cybercrime.
“When at his house I noticed him on a website www.vionz.to that was selling crypto and bank logins,” Okeke told crime journalist David Pright.
“I asked him about the website and he showed me that he buys bank and crypto logins from there and easily withdraws above $20,000 at a time, that’s how he was funding his lifestyle.
In 15 minutes he demonstrated it to me and from there I tried it myself when I got home. After successfully doing my first transfer so easily it was hard to stop after that. From there I got introduced to other money-making schemes that got me where I am today.”
Invictus arrested and arraigned in an American court in August 2019 on charges of computer and wire fraud.
