Talented Nigerian Developed ATM Cloning Software And Withdrew N2.9m In 3 Days

18-years-old driver, Mayowa Adenuga showed his fraud skills when he stole his boss' credit card, cloned it and stole over N2.9 million from the man's accounts.

THE NATION reports that: Mayowa, who was the man’s driver, had collected the unnamed man’s Automated Teller Machine (ATM) card while he was washing the vehicle and ran it on a software he devolped – Credit Card Revealer (CCR).

According to Mayowa, he collected the ATM card, ran it through the software and generated a new pin for it before handing it over to Opeyemi Adewale, 18, and Jeremaiah Titoye, 29, to go and shop at Mega Plaza and Shoprite.

“Before I started driving my Oga, I used to be a fraudster. I went to a computer institute and so, I developed the device which we used to clone credit cards. Honestly, my boss has been very good to me. It’s not up to a year I started working for him but he has always treated me kindly.

“I know I should have returned the card to him when I saw it but I just wanted to test the software whether it will work. And when I tried it and it worked, I knew that I could not use it myself because of the surveillance cameras at the ATM points. So, I sent them and asked them to withdraw N200,000 which they did.

“The following day, I told them to go to Mega Plaza and buy Apple laptop, phones, wristwatches and I also told them to go to Shoprite on Victoria Island and the one at Ikeja for shopping. Everything they bought amounted to N2.7 million.

A private driver identified as Mayowa Adenuga, has been arrested by the Lagos State Police Command for allegedly cloning the ATM card of his employer, and stealing the sum of N2.9 million from his accounts within three days.

“I did not work with any telecommunication company to bar my boss’ calls and text messages. I blocked his calls and sms on his phone when I had access to it. That way, he was not able to make calls nor send sms for about three days until he went to the subscriber to complain.

“I feel bad and I regret my actions. I am willing to pay back all that I stole from my boss. I am very sorry about my action,” he said.

Opeyemi, who said he never knew that the ATM card was stolen, said he thought that the owner was related to Adenuga since they bear the same surname.
