Shocking!!! Texas Woman Who believed She Was Dating BRUNO MARS Conned Of $100,000 By Nigeria Men

Two Nigerians identified as Chinwendu Azuonwu and Basil Amadi are facing trial in Houston, after scamming a 63-year-old Texas woman of $100,000 in a romance scam.
The Nigerians made the woman believe she was dating pop star Bruno Mars, to commit the offence, also known as catfishing scam. Catfishing is the act of creating a fictional persona online as a means of luring someone into a relationship. 

 This becomes a cyber crime when it is for the purpose of ripping them off either through taking out loans on their name or stealing their credit card data.
In a report by Mail Online, Azuonwu, 39, a resident of Houston, appeared in court on Tuesday accused of impersonating Mars on Instagram as part of the scam to swindle the victim out of her savings. 

 Azuonwu, charged with third-degree felony money laundering, was taken into custody this week, KPRC-TV reported. In court documents, his co-conspirator was identified as Basil Amadi, 29. 

 The victim, a resident of North Richland Hills, Texas, told police that in 2018 she created a profile on Instagram ‘in search of companionship.’

 She then made contact online with someone claiming to be Mars. During these interactions on Instagram and Google Hangouts, the woman told investigators that she ‘fell in love’ with the person she thought was Mars. 

 In addition, ‘Mars’ told the woman that he planned to quit his tour so that he can be with her.

 The woman told police that she believed at the time that she was communicating with the 11-time Grammy Award winner after she received text messages showing Mars performing while he was on tour.
