Mother and son wanted by FBI, jailed for internet scam in Lagos (photos)

A duo of internet scammers, Damilola Ahmed Adeyeri (m), and Alaba Kareem Adeyeri (f) who turned out to be family members (son and mother) have sentenced to prison on a four-count charge of criminal conspiracy and obtaining money under false claims (fraud) to the sum of $82, 570, about N29.9million.

The woman and her son both bagged three years jail sentence each by Justice Chukwujekwu Aneke who presided over the case at the Federal High Court, Ikoyi, Lagos, convicted.

They were found guilty on all counts charged against them but all the sentences will run at the same time. Justice Aneke also ordered that all the money and properties recovered from the criminals be handed over to the Federal Government and should be given back to the victims once they apply for them.

The arrest of the criminal pair was triggered by an appeal from the FBI against Damilola Adeyeri and his cohorts (who are currently on the run) on a case of money laundering, obtaining under false pretence, computer-related fraud, and criminal conspiracy.

One of the counts reads:
“that you, Damilola Ahmed Adeyeri, Alaba Kareem Adeyeri and Karen Russell (still at large) sometime on the 21st day of June 2017, in Lagos within the jurisdiction of the court conspired to fraudulently impersonate the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of American Cranes Manufacturing Company with intent to gain monetary advantage in the sum of $82, 570. 00 (Eighty-Two Thousand Five Hundred and Seventy US Dollars) and thereby committed an offence contrary to Section 27 (1) (b) and 22 (3) of the Cyber Crime (Prohibition Prevention etc) ACT, 2015 and punishable under Section 22 (1) of the same Act.”
Another count reads:
“That you Damilola Ahmed Adeyeri, Alaba Kareem Adeyeri and Karen Russell (still at large), sometime on the 19th day of July 2017, in Lagos, within the jurisdiction of this court dishonestly represented yourself as the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of American Cranes Manufacturing Company thereafter you sent an email from personal@managements-securemail-office-portal.online with intent to gain advantage to yourselves and you thereby committed an offence contrary to Section 27 (1) (a) and 22 (3) of the Cyber Crime (Prohibition Prevention etc) ACT, 2015 and punishable under Section 22 (1) of the same Act”.

After the charges were read to the convicts, they pleaded guilty to the four-count charge of conspiracy and obtaining money under false pretences.
