A Nigerian man was deported by Indonesian immigration authorities in Bali after having scammed several women on the Island of Gods in addition to overstaying his visa. 

The 30-year-old man, who is identified by his initials EEK, was sent packing yesterday at 8:30pm boarding an Ethiopian Airlines flight heading to Abuja via Addis Ababa.

Head of the Bali Office of the Indonesian Ministry of Law and Human Rights Affairs, Anggiat Napitupulu, said that EEK arrived in the country on July 23, 2019 and launched a children’s clothing business. The business closed down after he failed to keep it afloat.

EEK did not apply for a visa extension, which he should have done on Aug. 21, 2019 at the very latest.

“So he overstayed for 927 days, or more than two-and-a-half-years,” Anggiat said

After his entrepreneurial endeavor went south, EEK scammed women online by flirting and romancing them, so he could convince them to transfer money to his account a la the Tinder Swindler.

Officials have not said how many women EEK managed to scam during his time in Bali.

EEK may not be able to return to Indonesia as his name was added to the country’s persona non grata list.
