Internet fraudster who hacked 100 Facebook accounts

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Port Harcourt’s Zonal Office has arraigned Okohwan Kelvin before Justice A. T. Mohammed of the Federal High Court in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, on one-count charge bordering on cyber crimes.

He was accused of hacking into 100 Facebook accounts of users.

The defendant pleaded not guilty to the one count charge when read to him.

Kelvin’s ordeal, followed his arrest by operatives of the EFCC after discreet monitoring of his online activities, based on complaints from members of the public alleging that he hacked and took over their Facebook accounts, by clicking on a phishing link he sent to them.

Investigations showed that Kelvin had hacked about one hundred Facebook accounts using phishing links generated from an online hacking website.

He was also accused of selling hacked Facebook accounts to other fraudsters who were using them for various nefarious online activities.

In some cases, he used many of the accounts himself to defraud friends of his victims
