A Nigerian man has been sentenced to 12 years in prison in Vietnam for duping women with the promise of love.

A 35-year-old Nigerian, Oshanugor James Anyasi, has been sentenced to 12 years in jail by a Vietnamese court for scamming a woman of a huge amount of money while promising her false love, Thanh Nien News reports.

Anyasi was found guilty by an Hanoi Court on Tuesday, September 29, on two counts of fraud and cyber crime for appropriating other people’s assets, after he and two other Nigerian men and a Vietnamese woman who is already in jail, the Vietnamese woman of about 400 million (US$17,800).

The other Nigerians are now on the run.

According to the report, the four met each other in September 2012 and decided to cheat Vietnamese women by hooking up with them online, pretending to become their lovers and promising them expensive gifts, then faking phone calls and e-mails from customs and shipping agencies to ask them to transfer shipping fees to certain accounts.

Investigators found that the gang had stolen the money from 10 women with Anyasi getting 15 percent of the money by playing the role of an English businessman and chatting with the women, while their female accomplice got 10 percent, and the other two who are based in Malaysia, took the 75 percent.

One of the women based in southern Vietnam, paid the gang a 'shipping fee' of nearly 21 Vietnam million before getting an email asking for another 46 million, and that was when it dawned on her that she had been scammed.

Another woman in Nha Trang in central Vietnam, parted with 100 Vietnam million, believing it was a fee to receive around 10 billion that Anyasi was transferring to Vietnam to buy land in the resort town.

A Ho Chi Minh City woman, who was promised an iPhone, a ring and 10,000 pounds, paid 12 million.

In the other fraud case, Anyasi stole $12,000 by hacking into the email of a Vietnamese company and asking its partners to transfer the money.

He was arrested in February while waiting to board a flight to Cambodia.
