EFCC Re-arraigns American Over $1.2m Green Card Fraud

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Thursday re-arraigned an American, Marco Antonio Ramirez, before an Ikeja Special Offences Court for allegedly defrauding three Nigerians of $1,229,800 under the pretext of securing America’s Green Card for them.

Those allegedly defrauded by the American and his companies are: Ambassador Godson Echejue, Abubakar Umar Sodiq and Olukayode Sodimu.

The American was re-arraigned before Justice Mojisola Dada on an amended 12-count charge bordering on conspiracy and obtaining under false pretence.

The accused was arraigned alongside his companies, U.S.A Now LLC, Eagle Ford Instalodge Group LP and U.S.A Now Capital Group.

During proceedings yesterday, Ramirez again pleaded not guilty to the amended 12-count charges brought against him by the EFCC.

EFCC’s prosecuting counsel, N. S. Oweize, asked the court for a trial date.
The judge adjourned the matter till October 7, 8, 9 and 10 for trial.
From the nation

In Nigeria only poor people and a few unlucky rich ones go to Jail.


  1. It feels good the table is turning.. not Everytime a Nigerian is arrested for fraud.

  2. What is good for the goose is also palatable for the gander.

  3. Where did those ambassador and co get $1.2 million from?
    With less than half of that money direct investment in the US economy
    won't one get a green card effortlessly, doesn't the ambassador know that?
    Efcc should leave this expatriate alone and catch the politicians who are
    looting Nigeria dry.
