A 29-year-old Nigerian man, Chidozie Collins Obasi, has been declared wanted in the United States for alleged fr@ud.
Obasi is being accused of allegedly defr@uding US hospitals of $31 million by offering non-existent COVID-19 ventilators for sale. The US Department of Justice (DoJ) in a statement on Friday, said the suspect perpetrated the scheme from Nigeria with the help of co-conspirators abroad between September 2018 and June 2020
Obasi and his accomplices allegedly obtained more than $31,000,000 through a complicated fr@ud scheme, the majority coming from the State of New York.
“The scheme alleged in the Indictment began in September 2018, with a sp@m email campaign that offered phony “work from home” jobs. When a person responded to the phony job offer, Obasi or a co-conspirator posed as a representative of a legitimate company, often a supposed medical equipment supplier based outside the United States
