All most wanted by FBI: Top L-R Uzuh, Ogunshakin, Okpoh; below L-R Kayode, Orson Benson and Olorunyomi

The FBI in the United States has declared six Nigerians most wanted for cyber crimes, involving a $6 million swindle of over 70 U.S. businesses.

The wanted Nigerians are Michael Olorunyomi, Richard Izuchukwu Uzuh, Alex Afolabi Ogunsakin, Felix Osilama Okpoh, Abiola Ayorinde Kayode and Nnamdi Orson Benson.

The FBI accuses the six of executing a business email compromise scheme that defrauded over 70 different businesses in the U.S., resulting in combines losses of over $6 million.

Uzuh, who appears to be the leader of the gang, was indicted on 18 October 2016, in the US district court of Nebraska, Omaha, on charges of wire fraud, conspiracy to commit wire fraud.On 19 October, a Federal warrant was issued for his arrest.He has been in hiding ever since, somewhere in Nigeria.According to the FBI poster declaring Uzuh wanted, he and his co-conspirators sent spoofed emails to thousands of U.S. businesses, requesting fraudulent wire transfers.Uzuh allegedly worked with money launderers, romance scammers and others involved in BEC schemes to launder the proceeds of other crimes through a complex network of witting and unwitting people in the U.S. and abroad.


Okpoh
who was indicted three years later was accused of providing hundreds of bank accounts to Uzuh and other co-conspirators.
The accounts were used to receive fraudulent wire transfers running into $1million.Okpoh was indicted 21 August with a warrant of arrest issued on 22 August.

Afolabi Ogunshakin, who was also declared wanted was similarly accused of providing bank accounts to Uzuh and gang, to receive the fraudulent wire transfer.According to the FBI, Ogunshakin caught the bug of fraud, by staging his own BEC, after being an apprentice to Uzuh and other.Like Okpoh, he was inndicted on 21 August and a warrant issued for his arrest on 22 August.

Abiola Ayorinde Kayode
, also on the FBI list was accused of providing bank accounts to Uzuh. He was also alleged to have conducted BEC and romance scams of his own.He was indicted same day with Ogunshakin and Okpoh.

Nnamdi Orson Benson
, the 5th member of the gang was also accused of making available bank accounts to the gang. He also staged his own scams too.

Michael Olorunyomi was not just a member of the six-man gang, he targeted vulnerable elders and widows in his scams.
He defrauded his victims of more than $1million.He also aided the Uzuh group in providing bank accounts of his victims to be used for fraudulent wire transfers from other victims.He was the last to be indicted on 13 November 2019 for conspiracy to commit wire fraud, identity theft and access device fraud.His warrant of arrest was issued on 14 November.

All the wanted Nigerians are believed to be resident in Nigeria.

I still wonder how people justify fraud. Some would blame bad governance in Nigeria while some would stupidly say they are only collecting what the white men took from us.

So the actions of these men who lived in the US and scamming are to be influenced by what?

I laugh at people who do yahoo and think they won't get caught. Whether you like it or not, you'll get caught sooner or later. The people who are rotting in jail today, once believed that they wouldn't get caught because the always cover their tracks and stay on the low. Today they're regretting going into Yahoo.
It's only a matter of time before these ones get caught

I wonder also. What baffles me the most is how the despot in Aso Rock was able to scam 15 Million Nigerians of their money and votes in 2015, manipulate the election again in 2019 despite his failures, even go to Kano and associate with Gandollar, a man caught on video collecting bribe, then still claim to be a man of integrity fighting corruption.

Don’t you wonder? grin
