A 31 year old hacker identified as Dare Oladimeiji, was few days ago arrested by the operatives of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad in Ladipo, Lagos.
Oladimeiji who claims to be a footballer revealed that he got all the necessary details to hack into people’s account from Google Chrome.
The young man who is a father of 3 kids was tracked down at the Idi-Oro area of Lagos State after he withdrew N200,000 from his victims account.
“I work on sim cards to get money. When I lay my hands on any sim card, I would slot it into any small phone that is not adroid. When that is done, I would press a code which brings out the list of banks the owner of the sim uses,” he said.
“For example, if the person is using GTB, I will proceed with the normal code of *37*100#. If the person has money , we would use it to buy recharge card to confirm how much the owner has, through the debit alert that would pop in to reveal the balance. Thereafter, we would transfer the money into donors accounts, from where we would withdraw the money,” he added.
He revealed that the only way he cannot gain access into victims account is when the victim locks their SIM card.
“The only thing that can prevent me from hacking into account through phone is when the SIM card itself is locked. But most people don’t lock their sim cards, they only lock their phones. You can only beat my likes to the game if you lock your sim card because only the owner knows the password”.
He was arrested after returning from Dubai following the expiration of his 2 years contract with Alain FC.
According to him, in decided to start stealing people’s money after he lost all the money he allegedly brought home from Dubai.

He further noted that he decided to go into the business which he described as a “small version of Yahoo Yahoo” because he doesn’t want to go into robbery.
“I decided to venture into this business which is a small version of yahoo yahoo because I didn’t want to go into robbery. At Idi-Oro, there are pick pockets . When they snatch phones from victims, they would throw the sim cards away. What I do is to go looking for these sim cards and continue from there.
taught me the skill. I learnt it from google chrome. This is just common
sense. But I regret my action because I have brought shame to my children”, he
