Nigerian man listed among Britain's Most Wanted Con Artists (photo)

A rogues' gallery of ten alleged con-artists wanted in relation to fraud cases across Britain has been released by the National Crime Agency. And proudly sitting among them is a Nigerian man named Bayo Lawrence Anoworin, 41, from Lagos, Nigeria.

According to DailyMail. Bayo Lawrence Anoworin, pictured in the middle above, is wanted by Lincolnshire Police over an alleged scam by a gang that stole more than £12million from NHS Trusts in the UK and Guernsey between January 2011 and July 2012.

The album was compiled ahead of fresh figures that are expected to reveal the huge scale of fraud in
the UK - leaving people out of pocket by nearly £200billion-a-year.

Others wanted include Alex McKenzie, 33, from London, who is accused of targeting victims using the gay social networking app Scruff, gaining their trust by claiming to work for MI6.
It is claimed he conned two former lovers and one of their parents by taking out credit cards, bank accounts and loans worth a total of £300,000 in their names.

Another is Bollywood film producer Sandeep Arora, 42, from Beckton, east London, who allegedly claimed £4.5 million in VAT and Film Tax rebates for movies that either did not exist or with which he had no involvement.

Details of the alleged criminals, published today by the NCA and the City of London Police, will be shared widely in the hope of snaring those wanted in connection with dozens of crimes nationwide.
