Ajibola Hammed is a Nigerian scammer who decided to pick a beautiful white name for himself, Jessica Mercy, thereby presenting him as a woman to unsuspecting victims.
The Ibadan based scammer in the cyberworld uses the false identity to swindle men looking for a white woman to love but then the EFCC came and spoiled it for him.
Justice Patricia Ajoku of the Federal High Court in Ibadan, on Monday convicted him on one count amended charge, bordering on impersonation.
In a classic love scam, Hammed was trying to swindle one Juan Angle, an American man with whom he claimed to be deeply in love with.
The EFCC, whose operatives arrested him said he had run foul of Section 22(2)(b)(i) of the Cybercrime (Prohibition Prevention, Etc.) Act 2015.
He pleaded guilty to the charge and then entered a plea bargain agreement with the EFCC, culminating in the amendment of his charge.
In view of his plea, Justice Ajoku convicted and sentenced him to three months in prison.
The court also ordered him to forfeit one Vivo 1906 phone to the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
