On Tuesday, a jury in the United States of America sentenced Sulemon Arowokoko, 32, of Nigeria, to 44 months in prison for fraud.
United States Attorney Cindy K. Chung announced today that Arowokoko was convicted by United States District Judge Nicolas Ranjan of conspiracy, access device fraud, and aggravated identity theft.
The Department of Homeland Security Investigations and the United States Postal Inspection Service investigated the aggravated fraud.
Arowokoko of Pittsburgh, Pa., was sentenced by Justice Ranjan for his role in using stolen identity information to persuade financial institutions to issue credit and debit cards on victim customers’ accounts.
Assistant United States Attorney Jeffrey Bengal, who prosecuted the case on behalf of US government told the court that Arowokoko, in two years, used those fraudulently obtained credit and debit cards to obtain more than $250,000 worth of gift cards, clothes, jewelry, cologne, perfume, furniture, and other items which some of them were shipped to Nigeria.
However, the US Attorney, Cindy Chung who was just sworn-in on Tuesday commended the Homeland Security Investigations and United States Postal Inspection Service for the successful investigation that led to the prosecution of Arowokoko.
