‘Nigerian lottery’ scammers arrested in Torremolinos

National Police in Torremolinos have arrested three people, two women and one man, for their alleged involvement in a ‘Nigerian Lottery’ scam in which a British citizen was conned out of €10,530 after they convinced him he had won a large prize in a lottery.

Police seized two bank accounts belonging to the detainees which contained a total of €60,000. Victims were sent emails informing them that they had won large amounts of money in a lottery. The emails were sent from an internet booth in the centre of Torremolinos.
