A Nigerian man identified as Kelechi Christian Ukpabi has been arrested by the Philippines Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG) over his involvement in romance and fake dollar scam. His arrest came following a petition from his last victim, Roger, a school principal whom he scammed of P500,000.

Ukpabi was posing as a female member of the United States Army who was assigned to Afghanistan and became Roger’s “online girlfriend”.

He had told Roger that he would send him a dollar equivalent of millions of pesos for the development of an asylum in the Philippines.

But before getting the money, Roger must first fix the document and pay the clearance for the money.Roger paid nearly P500,000 but he became cynical when Ukpabi introduced him to “black dollar” aka fake dollars.

Under “black dollar” or “black money,” the culprits convince their victims that a sealed paper is money that has been painted in order not to be found by the authorities.
