Two men have been charged over a £1m email scam which took money from the bank accounts of hundreds of students.

Police said students on government loans were sent phishing emails urging them to provide their banking details.

Damola Olatunji, 26, of Hamsterley Avenue, Manchester, and Amos Mwangi, 25, of Rochdale Way, Deptford, London, face a charge of conspiracy to defraud.

They were remanded in custody until 17 February by Westminster Magistrates’ Court, central London.

Their next appearance is due to be at Southwark Crown Court in south-east London.

Mr Olatunji is also charged with possession of an article for use in fraud.
