Nigerian,jailed in UK for fraud, forgery
06.09.2007 Thursday, September 6, 2007

Between September 1, 2003, and June 18 this year, 29-year-old Adebiyi Adebayo obtained £11,372.99 by fraud and attempted to obtain another £11,428 by fraud.

Adebayo pleaded guilty at Edinburgh Sheriff Court last month to fraud, attempted fraud and being in possession of a forged French passport. His sentence was deferred until yesterday for background reports.

Fiscal Deputy, Carol Urquhart, said Adebayo came to the United Kingdom in 2002, using a false immigration entrants letter, stating that he had permission to work in Scotland.

He got a job as a sorter in the Royal Mail’s Edinburgh Mail Centre in Cutlins Road. He also rented a flat in Reid Terrace and got a provisional driving licence under false names, she said.

At his place of work, he stole packets containing business cheque books and wrote cheques to himself or one of his four aliases and paid them into bank accounts in branches of Abbey National, Woolwich, Nationwide and Halifax Bank of Scotland.

The Fiscal said the matter came to light when the building societies and banks “ became aware that something untoward was going on”.

Adebayo, she said, had used a photograph as identification to open his various accounts. The police got a copy of it and showed it to the manager of the Royal Mail depot where he worked and he identified him as a member of staff.

Too many nigerian fraudsters entering the UK now. Maybe the British govt should ban Nigerians from entering the UK.
