Following the arrest of Nigerian singer, Dammy Krane and his accomplice, one Mr. Chukwuebuka in Miami, USA on Friday evening on grounds of grand theft, credit card fraud and impersonation, the world’s first Hail-A-Jet service, Tapjets, has revealed how they succeeded in arresting both alleged criminals.
In an exclusive chat between GLtrends and Konstantin, Head of Flight Safety and Security, Tapjets, the company revealed how they nabbed both suspects.
Q: What is the implication of Dammykrane’s crime?
A: Not sure on implication. It’s a legal question.
Q: Has he been released on bail?
A: Our understanding is that, that is not the case yet. His accomplice was already out on bail and he is not eligible.
Q: How was the crime detected and for how long has he been defrauding your company?
A: A small token of authenticity. He uses Samsung Galaxy 7. And messages did not come from that phone. However, that same phone was used to place the online order with credit card that does not belong to him.
Same phone was used to register multiple accounts trying to buy with different cards until one finally worked. However, names did not match to zip codes etc.
We are 100% confident that our app was on that phone and order was placed via T-Mobile network from cell tower located in Miami area.
We have coordinates of cell tower and proof that they took a car from that area to Opalacka airport. That’s where arrest took place. We are not proud about it. We want others to think twice before stealing from companies.
Technology is very sophisticated and being an airline, we have access to the latest. I hope you can help spreading the message that we are not on a witch hunt. We simply want people to hear the victim side of 3 edges.
Recall that the arrest was made on 2nd of June, 2017, in Miami, Florida and the Nigerian singer who has since been processed into prison has been granted bail in the sum of $22,500 but Dammy Krane is faced with a 9-count-charge of fraud and grand theft.
Also, a defense attorney, Deborah Prager, has now been appointed to represent him in court.
