3 Nigerians Arrested Over $500k Credit Card Scam In The U.S by LecciGucci: 2:30pm On Aug 15, 2016
Three Nigerian fraudsters including a woman, Maxwell Ezenwa, Christy Tifase and Shalewa Olayinka, have been arrested and charged by the Harris County Sheriff's Office investigators and the United States Postal Inspectors for allegedly perpetrating a massive Credit Card scam that has set back owners to the tune of $500,000, Daily Mail reports.


According to the Sheriff's Office, the trio started the scam in 2014, after investigators began a joint investigation of a group suspected of being involved in fraud in which credit cards were applied without the victims' consent, mailed to the victims, and stolen out of their mail boxes.

The scammers were also said to have registered two business ventures with which they used to process the credit cards for large unusual amounts, and were also able to generate cash from the fraud apps they had created.

Those businesses were identified as Lace Warehouse and African Fashions owned by Maxwell Ezenwa and Lagos Island Café, owned by Christy Tifase, while the losses incurred by the victims of the fraud exceeded $500,000 and dozens of identities were stolen.



Ezwena said to have been arrested previously in a case for fraudulent use of identifying information, although he will now face an additional charge of engaging in organized criminal activity, while Olayinka was arrested on a warrant for engaging in organized criminal activity.

Some people here instead of condemning the crime they will be busy checking names to confirm which tribe carries the day.

If they are unsuccessful determining which name belongs to which tribe they will resort to measuring the shapes of the heads of the accused to be sure.

They call themselves Names Checkers Association of Nigeria with branches all over Nigeria and the diaspora.
