US Jails Nigerian Man Over $1m Fraud

A Nigerian, Fawaz Olanrewaju Animasaun, will spend the next three years in jail in the US, for defrauding East Texans and others of nearly $1 million.



The 27-year-old is one of two persons named in a federal indictment for charges of aggravated identity, theft and conspiracy.
His arrest

He was traveling to the US from Ghana, by way of Amsterdam, when he was arrested at the airport in New York in November, 2016.

A few weeks later, the 7-foot-1-inch tall Nigerian was an inmate at the Gregg County Jail awaiting his turn in a federal courtroom.

Under a plea agreement finalized in May, Animasaun is serving three years in prison on the conspiracy charge. He is ordered to pay $930,737.60 in restitution to three financial companies.

Court documents show Animasaun will pay $135,989 to East Texas-based Austin Bank as part of that restitution.

In addition, the agreement states that Northern Trust Company is due $46,800 and UMB Financial Corporation is due $747,948.60.


The allegation

Animasaun and his alleged accomplice Idowu Temitope Omolade, also from Nigeria, are believed to be involved in at least 21 fraudulent wire transfers between April and August of 2012.

A footnote made by a US Attorney read that Animasaun unlawfully obtained money through unauthorised transfers of funds from bank accounts and brokerage accounts.

To do that, the Nigerian men allegedly impersonated actual account holders in emails exchanged with banking and financial services personnel.

In those email conversations, the Attorney said the suspects ”… harvested details about the target accounts, including account balances, and obtained wire transfer instructions.” With those details, the suspects were then able to initiate a wire transfer without the account holder’s knowledge or authorisation.

Is easier to forgive but it takes the grace of God to forgive totally, is only God that can help one forget totally.

I could remember some times ago when my elder sister did something to me, it hurt me so much that it took months before finally I prayed a sincere praywr to God to help me forgive and forget. After that day prayer in church everything juat vanished, I felt better again, til now I can't remember it again and even when a flash back k come I don't see it as an offense or feel any pain. But the things my husband is doing to me I must pay him back with his own coin when the time comes, I forgive him now but I will not forget about them till I pay him fully back.

Forgive and forget is good bit is hard to forget, is only God that can help one out of forgetting. You may forgive but forget chei is the Holy Spirit that can save you from forgetting.

Like rape incident can one forget about it? Is hard to forget somethings in life, only God can totally make one forgive and forget.

Larry Hoover is just a stubborn boy. When he got visa, they told him to come get it in 7 days instead of the normal 3 days. Everyone told him not to go but he relied too much on his jazz.

Go and come back and sin no more bro
