Japheth (aka Mr Tim Graw and Tom Cruise), on or about the 16th day of February 2022 in Lagos, had in his possession several documents containing false pretences, one of which is a record of his conversation with several unsuspecting victims via his email address:, wherein he represented himself as Mr Tim Graw and Tom Cruise to obtain gift cards and money from them, a representation he knew was false.

He pleaded “guilty” to the charge when it was read to him.
