Samuel used to identify himself as Richard Philip and collected a hefty sum of money by cheating innocent people through his cell phone after alluring them to claim online rewards.

NSI has been monitoring Samuel’s activities for a long time, the official added.

Later, Samuel was produced before a court showing him arrested in the case, he also added.
