Young lady arrested in UK after travel agent she paid N15m scammed her with fake documents
A Nigerian lady has landed in trouble in the United Kingdom after being scammed and deceived by a travel agent.
The 20-year-old reportedly paid the agent about €20k (approximately N15 million) to process student visa for her, but she did not realise she would end up being a victim of fraud.
According to a London-based Nigerian man, he was called to attend to the matter when she got detained at the airport in UK.
The lady who wanted to study in the European nation realised after her arrest that she was scammed with a fake student visa and it left her totally devastated and depressed.
The man said he drove for five hours from London to Sunderland to help facilitate the girl’s release from detention.

In other news, a Caucasian man has taken to social media to reveal how he scammed people who tried to scam him.
The young guy narrated how he was able to make more than $20,000 from defrauding a bunch of internet fraudsters.
According to the techie, he located the scammers through their investment videos online where they released WhatsApp numbers for unsuspecting victims.
He then contacted them and showed interest in making an investment of 20 thousand dollars and asked each of them how much returns they can guarantee.
Excited by the thought of getting such amount from him, some of the cyber scammers promise paying him $140k by the end of the week.
The software engineer then created a fake version of CashApp and recorded a video of himself acting like he is sending $10,000.
However, he programmed it in such a way that made it to look like CashApp is withholding the money because of how large the sum is.
It then requests them to send him $50 to unlock the account so that they can access the 10k they thought he sent to them.
He shared screenshots of his account statement showing how the unsuspecting scammers sent him amounts ranging from 50 dollars to 75 dollars, not knowing that they are being scammed.
