57-Year-Old Nigerian Admits Guilt in $12 Million Fraud Case in the US

Oluseun Martins Omole, also known as “Seun Omole,” has pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit wire fraud in a widespread scheme that defrauded thousands of victims in the United States and beyond, totaling over $12 million. The plea was entered before U.S. Judge Katharine H. Parker, marking a crucial step in the legal proceedings.

 

According to the allegations, Omole was involved in a criminal enterprise based in Nigeria, orchestrating various scams targeting unsuspecting victims. These scams included romance scams, online marketplace scams, and employment scams, collectively referred to as the “Fraudulent Electronics Scams.” Victims were deceived into sending consumer electronics and money to Omole through false pretenses.

 

Operating under the guise of Tobylink Impressions, Inc., Omole facilitated the receipt and distribution of fraudulently obtained goods, repackaging and shipping them to co-conspirators in Nigeria. Throughout the conspiracy, Omole handled more than $12 million worth of consumer electronics and other items, earning substantial fees in the process.
