A United State court sitting in New York has sentence Nigerian hacker Mr. Obinna Obioha to 4years and 3 months in prison for operating a fraud scheme that swindled $6.5 million from businesses in the U.S. and elsewhere.
The announcement of Obioha’s sentence was made by Acting United States Attorney Grant C. Jaquith and Vadim D. Thomas, Special Agent in Charge of the Albany Field Office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. “Obioha, working from Nigeria, was a central figure in a fraud scheme using digital disguises and deceit to bilk businesses out of millions of dollars.
We will continue to track down and bring to justice cyber criminals like Obioha no matter where they operate. I thank the FBI for its terrific work in this case identifying and apprehending Obioha,” said Acting United States Attorney Grant C. Jaquith.
