A pastor of Redeemed Christian Church of God in Cambodia, Mr. Ebenezer his wife Margaret Oyetoran and church members has been reported arrested for fraud and money laundering after the force of Department of Technology Crimes of the General The National Police led an investigation.

Cambodia News, Phnom Penh: On 5 September 2020, 3 Nigerians and 1 Cambodian were detained by the Phnom Penh Municipal Court for fraud and money laundering, after an investigation led by the Department of Technology Crimes of the Cambodian National Police.
The National Police commissioner, General Neth Savoeun, ordered an investigation after receiving a complaint on August 29, 2020.
The Technology Crime Department, in cooperation with the Russey Keo District Police Inspectorate and the Meanchey District Police Inspectorate of the Phnom Penh Municipal Police, made an inquiry into the allegation of online fraud and money laundering, and they arrested four suspects:
1:Bun Sreylen, female, 31 years old, Cambodian , 2: EBENEZER OYETORAN, male, Nigerian, 3: OYETORAN MARGARET IBDUNNI, female, Nigerian, and 4: IBEH HENRY, male, 46 years old, Nigeria.
All four suspects were sent to the Phnom Penh Municipal Court for legal action.
The suspects swindled money through social media, persuading locals and foreigners to send money to Cambodia through remittance agencies and some banks. After withdrawing the money, the suspects send the money to the leader of the organisation, receiving dividends according to their respective roles, and then the ringleader set up a fund to buy real estate in order to clean up the money from fraud before it sending back to their country.
The four accused have been remanded in custody by an investigating judge and taken to the police agency of the Department of Technology Crimes of the Technology Crimes Unit (M1).
Lt. Gen. Chea Pov, Director of the Department, would like to remind the people to be very careful of scammers, if this happens, please file a complaint at the Department of Technology Crimes.
