“Taking on the identity of a ‘Carlos Sanchez’, CJU talked his victim, who was identified as RF, into transferring Rp. 17 million as a clearance fee to recover $300,000 that was being held by customs,” he said.

“CJU assured RF that he will be reimbursed on their next meeting, after he got in touch with a customs officer who is none other than EP. But RF got suspicious when CJU did not show up during their next meeting, prompting him to report the scam to the police.”

Yusri added that the men would be charged under Indonesia’s Electronic Information and Transaction law for identity theft, misuse of information data, and illegal electronic transactions.

If found guilty, they face up to six years in jail and a Rp. 1 billion [$71,027.30] fine.
