Nigerian Man Sentenced To 11 Years In U.S Prison For Fraud by Gossipninja: 6:43pm On Jul 19, 2018
A 34-year-old Nigerian national, Kingsley Otuya was sentenced to 11 years in federal prison for his part fraud, money laundering and romance schemes in Austin, Texas that netted more than $1 million.
One of Otuya's victims killed herself after losing hundreds of thousands of dollars and being "emotionally devastated" by the romance scam, the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Western District of Texas said on Tuesday, July 17.
Multiple victims faced serious financial hardship as a result of the schemes. According to court documents, Otuya used an online dating profile to target at least one of the victims.
“This case brutally illustrates how fraud schemes hurt victims not only financially but also emotionally,” said U.S. Attorney John F. Bash. “We will remain steadfast in our efforts to protect Americans from transnational criminal conspiracies.”
Otuya pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit money laundering in April 2018.
Authorities began investigating him as part of a series of investigations in Austin into the activities of West African fraud schemes, officials said.
Acting as a "catcher," Otuya would quickly withdraw fraudulently obtained funds from bank accounts where the victims had deposited money, and would then send the money to his co-conspirators before victims tried to recover their funds.
Authorities said he used fake passports to open nine different bank accounts under false names in Austin and often withdrew $10,000 or less to avoid bank reporting requirements.
Otuya was paid a fee for the fraud proceeds that went through his accounts, the U.S. attorney's office said.
Court records show Otuya will likely be deported back to Nigeria following his prison term.
He has been ordered to pay more than $966,000 and be placed under supervised release for three years after he is released.

Show him no mercy.

When his prison term is done, send him to Nigeria nak.ed without anything of economic value.

We are tired of thieves creating an inflation and overpricing of goods and assets, when the honest Nigerian with a decent job can never save up to own such at the prevailing artificial prices.

If this fraudster and thief wasn't caught, he would have been one of many Nigerian millionaires perpetuating the bourgeois concept of highbrow real estate assets all over Nigeria, when there's hardly anything decent and affordable for those working to earn their money, yet the little they get to save is still lost to criminals like him who can afford everything their greedy eyes see.

All the highrise apartments and detached duplexes in Nigeria are being built with criminals like him in mind. The car showrooms are decorated with the latest models of luxury cars to cater for such lazy Nigerians and not the hardworking ones.


Monkey dey work for Ojuelegba and jumping inside moving danfo, Baboon dey chop for Banana Island and cruising with Bentley.

This is the kind of riff raff mostly on nairaland business section advertising U.S cash deposits for sale. 11 years is not enough, a minimum of 25years in jail should be handed out.

If they make their host proud, their are Americans, or at best African Americans. But if they commit crimes, they are strictly Africans.
He deserves his full punishment though, the only thing I need to point out is that he's not Nigerian. He's Biafran.
