Nigerian Sentenced To 14 Years In US Prison For Leading Fraud Ring by Nobody: 12:22pm On Jul 28, 2018
A Nigerian man identified as Ochuko Sylvester Eruotor has been sentenced to 14 years in a US Prison, after he was found guilty of leading a fraud ring which prosecutors in Texas said laundered $3.5 million from hundreds of victims.


Washington Times reported that 42 year-old Eruotor who lived in Canada was sentenced Friday in Austin, and the court also ordered him to repay nearly $1.7 million. Eruotor who was linked to a money laundering network in which victims were targeted with false reports of relatives in jail, fake investments, tax fraud and romance scams, was extradited from Germany last December, and he pleaded guilty in February to conspiracy to commit money laundering.

Prosecutors disclosed that Eruotor was the eighth person convicted and sentenced to federal prison. The others were earlier sentenced to US Prison terms ranging from 10 months to nine years.

This report is coming barely a day after we reported that Nigerian-American Osmond Eweka, son-in-law of Bright Igbinedion, was charged with fraud in New York. In New York, Eweka and his accomplice were busted for raking in thousands of dollars from a bogus employment agency scam, authorities said.
