A 39-year-old Nigerian, Olaniyi Nasiru Ojikutu, has been sentenced to nearly seven and a half years in a United States prison over fraudulent act and his role in a multi-year romance scheme. The United States prosecutors said Ojikutu, a permanent legal resident of US, opened about 25 bank accounts in his own name, a fake name, and a shell company name through which nearly $3.4 million in fraudulently obtained proceeds were transferred. They disclosed that Ojikutu, alongside nine others, were indicted in a Chicago-based sting operation, Operation Gold Phish, that identified cybercrimes targeted at older people.
