Some 32 people, including a Hudson County jail nurse, have been arrested in a multimillion, multi-state identity theft and credit card fraud ring

The Hudson County Prosecutor's Office first got involved in the investigation in the early fall of 2012, when they received numerous complaints from victims as far away as California claiming that credit cards in their name made fraudulent retail purchases in Hudson County, officials said today.

Using store video and physical surveillance, the detectives were able to identify several suspects, authorities state. Detectives then linked those suspects to hundreds of other accounts and millions of dollars in phony transactions.

The leaders of the group, authorities say, purchased the identities of unsuspecting victims from online brokers, who got the information from computer hackers across the United States.

In a process known as "punching," electronic account information from the cards' magnetic strips would be transferred onto counterfeit cards, which were provided to "strikers" who conducted the purchases at retailers all over the Eastern Seaboard, authorities say.

Teams of strikers purchased retail gift cards that were then used to purchase various electronic items, authorities say. Those items were then sold in bulk to fences in New York and New Jersey, authorities say. The fence would then sell the items to other people for cash payments.

The investigation has identified nearly 1,000 victims across the country and millions of dollars in phony transactions, authorities say.

Authorities say the suspects spent the proceeds on luxury cars, high-end jewelry and other lavish expenses. Some of the money was additionally sent to accounts in Nigeria, authorities say.

Acting Hudson County Prosecutor Guy Gregory commended a long list of agencies that were involved in the take down, saying, "The operation could not have succeeded without their assistance."

Defendants charged with money laundering, theft by deception, wrongful impersonation and conspiracy include: Bolaji Ola, 30, of Sayreville; Olamide Otti, 27, of Queens; Akintunde Adeyemi, 28, of East Orange; David Brown, 27, of Parlin; Adegbola Adedeji, 31, of Parlin; Oluwaseun Jato, 23, of Hillside; Oluwasola Diji, 31, of Westbury, NY; Oladapo Araromi, 26, of Elizabeth; and Bertrand Ahaneku, 25, of South Orange.

Those charged with theft by deception, wrongful impersonation, and conspiracy include: Oluwaseun Adekoya, 25, of Sewaren; Henry Abdul, 25, of Union; Babatunde Oyefeso, 27, Union; Michael Assih, 24, of East Orange; John Orubo, 32, of Brooklyn; Idris Soyemi, 25, of Brooklyn; Imrahim Akaba, 23, of Piscataway; Vladimir Francois, 27, of Newark; Yves Desir, 29, of Irvington; Aglaide Alzuphar, 23, of Newark; Kossi Klutse, 25, of Newark; Evon Morris, 23, of East Orange; Fontessa Foreman, 27, of Newark; Olutoye Babatunde, 22, of Plainfield; Olukayode Adeosun, 30, of Newark; Gologo Benshaw, 25, of Newark; Olushola Ayeni, 31, of Brooklyn; Orwells Oyakhire, 24, of Maplewood.

Oladayo Araromi, 26, of Linden and Olujimi Williams, 24 of Hillside were charged with conspiracy. Matthew Sabo, 29, of Sayreville and Vijay Shah, 24, of Springfield, are charged with fencing, conspiracy, and receiving stolen property.

Oladayo Araromi, a nurse at Hudson County jail making $79,298, has been suspended without pay, Hudson County spokesman Jim Kennelly said today.

Of the 32 arrested, 24 appeared in Central Judicial Processing court this afternoon. Bail was set for those who appeared by Hudson County Superior Court Judge Joseph Isabella prior to their court appearance. 

More arrests are expected, said Hudson County Assistant Prosecutor Gene Rubino.

Why do I feel sorry for her?
It tells you what greed is no matter who you are or the money you make in salary. It is a compulsion for some, never enough. A lady making $80,000.00 decided to join riff raff. You can't take gutter out of them. She probably lives in a two million house struggling to pay mortgage. I still feel bad for her sha.

ARE THE AMERICANS AND OTHER FOREIGNERS LIVING IN NIGERIA SAINTS!!!

WHEN ARE WE GOING TO START ARRESTING THE AMERICANS, BRITISH AND FRENCH TOO IN NIGERIA?!!!


When will 2000 Americans, British, Lebanese, French, Chinese, Indians, Israelis and other foreigners be dispalyed on Nigerian tv to Nigerians and the world for committing the following crimes:

1 Tax evasion running into billions of dollars;

2. Money laundering;

3. Bribing of Nigerian ministers in order to win contracts;

4. Mass pollution of the Niger Delta;

5. Having sexual relationship with under-age Nigerian girls/pupils;

6. Espionage;

7. Forging of documents;

8. Smuggling ammunitions into Nigeria;

9. Violation of Nigerian immigration law;

10. Working in Nigeria illegally;

11. Murder of Nigerians;

12. Underpaying and defrauding of Nigerians;

13. Selling of contaminated foods and expired drugs to Nigerians;

14. Supplying wrong/misleading financial and contract information to the Nigerian government;

15. Raping of Nigerian women;

16. Drug trafficking;

17. Running a medical center or practising medicine without authorization and license;

18. Engaging in terrorist activities in Nigeria;

19. Selling products that are harmful to the health of Nigerians;

20. Supplying the government with second-hand/used equipments instead of brand new ones as stipulated in the contract;

21. 419 - duping the government by failing to supply equipments or carrying out shoddy jobs.

So, my question is "Are the foreigners living in Nigeria saints? If not, why is the government not arresting and putting them too in our jails - as they are doing to Nigerians in their respective countries. Could this be due to inferiority complex or just incompetence on the part of our incompetent, corrupt, visionless and morally bankrupt government? The bitter truth is that foreigners living in Nigeria especially the citizens of the countries mentioned above commit much more serious crimes in Nigeria against Nigerians and Nigeria compared to what Nigerians do in their respective countries. It's high time we started a mass arrest and jailing of foreigners too in Nigeria! We will never be respected until we start doing the same to them too.
