A conman who targeted hundreds of UK students in a sophisticated phishing scam that used their compromised data to steal more than £1.5 million has been jailed for three years and nine months.
Olajide Onikoyi, 29, a Nigerian national of Blackley, Manchester was among a number of cyber criminals who targeted students. They sent them emails inviting them to update details on their student loan account via a link to a bogus website.
Detectives raided addresses in London and Manchester in December last year, seizing computers to identify Onikoyi’s involvement. In June last year, Amos Njoroge Mwangi, 27, of Deptford was sentenced to four years in jail for fraud convictions.
