On Saturday June 27, the United States’ Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) announced that it was seeking assistance in finding six Nigerians wanted for their involvement in fraudulent activities worth over $6 million equivalently, N2.3bn.
“Help the #FBI find six Nigerian nationals wanted for their involvement in business email compromise (BEC) schemes resulting in over $6 million in losses,” a post on FBI’s official Twitter account read.
The FBI-indicted Nigerians include Richard Izuchukwu Uzuh, Alex Afolabi Ogunshakin, Felix Osilama Okpoh, Abiola Ayorinde Kayode, and Nnamdi Orson Benson. The US agency said all six are “believed to currently reside in Nigeria.
According to the FBI, the six were part of an operation that “allegedly sent spoofed emails to thousands of businesses in the United States requesting fraudulent wire transfers.”
