Tapjets, the Hail-A-Jet service company opened up on how modern mobile technology helped to detect and trace the fraud that resulted in the arrest of Dammy Krane and his accomplice, Chukwuebuka.
The two were arrested on June 2, 2017, in Miami, Florida.
In a chat with Instablog9ja, they said;
“He (Dammy Krane) uses Samsung Galaxy 7, and messages did not come from that phone. However, that same phone was used to place the online order with a credit card that does not belong to him,” Head of Flight Safety and Security for Tapjets, Konstantin, told Instablog9ja exclusively.
“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.”
“Total of five cards in an hour till one worked. We are 100 percent confident that our app was on that phone and order was placed via T-Mobile network from a cell tower located in Miami area,” Konstantin continued.
“We have coordinates of cell tower and proof that they took a car from that area to Opalacka airport. That’s where the arrest took place.”
The company insists they were not happy with the arrest, as they weren’t witch-hunting.
“Technology is very sophisticated and being an airline, we have access to the latest. I hope you can help in spreading the message that we are not on a witch hunt,” Konstantin concluded.
Chukwuebuka has been released on bail, but, Dammy Krane who is facing 9 counts of fraud and grand theft is not eligible to bail yet. A defense attorney, Deborah Pragerr has been appointed to defend him
