Vietnamese police have released a wanted notice for a Nigerian hacker 
for stealing passwords of credit accounts of Vietnamese and foreigners 
and using these accounts to book tickets with low cost airlines.

On October 17, the Ministry of Public Security of Vietnam arraigned this 
hacker, named Opeoluwa Mark Adeyemi, 36, for fraud, and permitted him to 
be out on bail. However, he immediately went missing from his temporary 
residence.

According to police, this man hired a house on An Duong Vuong road, ward 
16, District 8, HCM City. He worked as a technician for a Vietnamese 
limited liability company named Hoang Yen Minh.

Adeyemi is a professional hacker and his job at the above company was 
stealing passwords of credit accounts of Vietnamese and foreigners 
online. This man and the director of Hoang Yen Minh company booked 
tickets with low cost airlines by these credit accounts for customers of 
Hoang Yen Minh company.

Adeyemi and the Vietnamese company director then appropriated the pay 
for air tickets of customers. The owners of credit cards must pay for 
the tickets or airlines must bear losses in case credit card owners 
discovered that they lost account passwords and refused to pay for the 
tickets.

According to initial estimates, these people appropriated billions of 
VND, including over VND1 billion from Pacific Airlines.
