Internet lottery scam in Pakistan

ISLAMABAD: Senior Civil Judge Muhammad Aslam Gondal Saturday extended the physical remand of an accused that defrauded people of millions of dollars usinf UNHCR’s name and handed him over to the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA).

The accused fooled masses into investing in an internet lottery and showed a fake agreement on the letter pad of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), signed by UNHCR Islamabad Engineer General and having a name John Cosmos as a witness.

A First Information Report (FIR) vide 11/09 dated 01-04-2009 was registered against Javed-ur- Rehman, a resident of National Housing Scheme 1, Rawalpindi, under section 7, 8, 9, 15, 19 and 20 of Prevention of Electronic Crimes Ordinance (PECO) 2007 r/w36, 37 of Electronic Transaction Ordinance (ETO) 2002. The complainant Janas Khan, Peshawar, had lodged the complaint with FIA Crime Circle.

According to FIA, Janas Khan was defrauded in the name of Internet lottery amounting to 1.3’ Million $. He was persuaded through e-mail messages sent by “Hanson Terence” and an agreement purportedly signed by ‘Teddy Akkson” as UNHCR Islamabad Engineer General, and John Cosmos as a witness on apparently fake letterhead of UNHCR, Islamabad. The accused demanded Khan to pay a 7.5% of the total that is $ 1.3 Million).

Enticed, Khan transferred Rs.183,000/- to the bank account of Maryam Faqir (Bank Account # 02180209, Cress Bank, Islamabad) from Peshawar Cantonment Cress Bank Branch through online banking. Khan allegedly also transferred through online banking Rs.1,399,125 to the bank account of Javed-ur-Rehman (Bank Account # 166-006-0000-895, Faisal Bank, Blue Area, Branch) from Peshawar Cantonment Faisal Bank Branch, paid in cash US $ 20,000 to person namely John Cosmos and sent an amount of 815,29 Pounds and $ 2,700 to Hanson Terence through Western Union.

FIA enquiry found that the account of Maryam Faqir was operated by Javed-ur-Rehman and she knew nothing about the transactions made in her account. Rehman made unauthorized access to bank account of Maryam and to the confidential information of her bank account and got transferred the money into his account in the same bank.

Accordingly, the competent court issued arrest warrants u/s 87 CrPC. FIA arrested Rehman on 24-05-2011.

FIA Saturday produced the accused before the court after his initial physical remand and informed the jury that initial probe has unearthed a cross border ring embroiled in the crime and that the detainee spoke of some of his Nigerian accomplices.

FIA requested a six-day extension in physical remand, which the court extended for three days and ordered to bring the accused back on May 31.
