James Aliyu, a Nigerian big boy based in South Africa, has been arrested by the International Criminal Police Organization, also known as Interpol, for alleged $12 million fraud.

On Wednesday, June 29, he was apprehended in his luxury Sandton estate in connection with nearly R196m in alleged romance scamming and business email compromise fraud, according to TimesLive.

The suspect, who appeared in the Randburg magistrate’s court shortly after his arrest, is well-known in South African social circles and on Instagram for his lavish vacations and extravagant spending on luxury items for himself and his girlfriend.

According to law enforcement sources, the alleged scammer was apprehended after a nearly six-year investigation by Interpol, the US Department of Homeland Security Investigations, and the US Secret Service.

According to sources, Aliyu has been in contact with several major convicted and suspected fraudsters from around the world and is considered a major player.
