According to Tapjets, Dammy krane tried to booked a private jet with 5 different credit cards under an hour until one worked. Tapjets claimed that the card details used by Dammy Krane, who was arrested on Friday alongside another Nigerian identified as Chukwuebuka, were different from his registered identity information.
He has been charged to court in the US on a 9 count lawsuit including;
- 3rd degree grand theft
- Credit card forgery/Intent to defraud (7 Counts)
- Identity information forgery/Fraudulent use
Speaking to newsmen, Tapjets revealed that they are not proud to have led to the arrest of Dammy Krane, but explained that it was their duty to protect other companies from being defrauded.
“We are 100% confident that our app was on that phone and order was placed via T-Mobile network from cell tower located in Miami area.
We have coordinates of cell tower and proof that they took a car from that area to Opalacka airport. That’s where arrest took place. We are not proud about it. We want others to think twice before stealing from companies.
Technology is very sophisticated and being an airline, we have access to the latest.
I hope you can help spreading the message that we are not on a witch hunt.”
A defense attorney, Deborah Prager, has been appointed to represent Dammy Krane in Court.
