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.
