Crime: Fraudsters Hack Into Vanguard Reporter’s E-mail


Vanguard has reported that fraudsters have hacked into the e-mail box of the Sapele correspondent of her  Newspapers, Mr Godwin Oghre, which reads: [email protected], and are using it to send mails to unsuspecting individuals whose contacts were contained there.

The fraudsters are soliciting one favour or another and even demanding private information of the contacts.

According to Oghre, he started receiving calls from some of his contacts as early as 7 a.m. yesterday, to confirm the authenticity of some mails they received, purportedly from him.

He said: “I did not and I don’t solicite favour or request for any individual’s private information. My email is purely for official work, particularly to receive and send news items to my editors for publication". 

The general public has been advised to please take note.
