Nigeria’s global identity, for so long, has been associated with internet scams and while nothing has seemingly been done to fix this smeared image, more cases of Nigerians committing fraudulent acts keep springing up. Yesterday, the United States Department of Justice released a statement announcing that 80 defendants, most of whom are Nigerians, have been charged with conspiracy to commit fraud, conspiracy to launder money, and aggravated identity theft. A number of the defendants, the statement said, are also facing substantive fraud and money laundering charges.
