The Philippines National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) who disclosed this in a statement on Tuesday, said the four Nigerians national were allegedly involved in hacking a Philippine bank where not less than $2,000 was stolen.

The agency said the fraudsters’ transactions were traced when they hacked a system of one Philippine bank, where at least P100 million were transferred and funnelled into a different account.

One of the suspects’ Filipina girlfriend admitted to having used her account to deposit and withdraw money amounting to at least P2 million ($41,000), which was supposedly for tuition.
