Back to Main Nigerian Scam Page
A Nigerian local weekend paper - 'Saturday Punch' at page three of its issue
No. 1063, Vol 17, of July 21, 2001 reports with the headline ' Nigerian
docked in the US over multi-million dollar scam'.
In summary, excerpts of the news reads that a 32 yr Nigerian male named
Oladimeji Olushola is on trial in the US for wire fraud allegations running
into Millions of US Dollars. The suspect tried to con an undercover Fed
agent in a sting ops that was well managed and conducted at a hotel in
Newark, New jersey on April 09, 2001. The suspect's programme followed the
typical wire transfer fraud with good dose of the usual lettered approach
demanding US$20,000 "clearing fees" to facilitate transfer of US$46million
from Nigerian hideaway point to the USA.
Suspect opened the act poising as a 'Suleman Abacha' ( Not 'Salisu Abrahim
Gwarzo' this time around) . Similarly the suspect is said to have operated
on a business man in Canada asking for US$13,000 to enable him remit a sum
of US$66 million to the subject's account in Canada from Nigeria. He is an
illegal immigrant in the USA as he was arrested bearing an expired visa.
The FBI, US Justice and Treasury Departments, initiatives greatly assisted
this development while Essex county Sheriff's office, Morris County
Prosecutor's office, East Brunswick and Jersey City Police Departments
assisted in smashing this syndicate of fraudsters.
This is a welcome news and the more of such efforts from abroad the higher
will be the impact of deterrence at the local base.
Local law enforcement activities mostly aims at tracking the source and mind
of such activities, although the impact of their efforts is yet to be felt
In my view, although there are many arrests there is inadequate strategic
publicity to reduce the interest of prospective wire fraud activists
as law enforcement is more preoccupied with sudden upsurge in violent crimes
and political activities.
