American Man Sent To Prison For Defrauding Three Nigerians

An Ikeja high court on Thursday remanded an American citizen, Marco Ramirez, at Kirikiri Maximum Prison for allegedly defrauding three Nigerians in a $565,000 green card and investment scam. Ramirez was remanded following his not-guilty plea to a 16-count charge of obtaining money under false pretences.
He was arraigned by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC). O. Aigboje, the EFCC prosecutor, alleged that the accused, managing director of three companies – USA Now Plc., Eagleford Instalodge Group and USA Now Capital Group – committed the offences between February 2013 and August 2013.

Aigboje said Ramirez fraudulently received $545,000 from Godson Echejue to invest in his company, Eagleford Instalodge Group, in order to procure an American green card (residence permit) for him (Echejue). He also allegedly received $10,000 from Abubakar Umar through a non-existent investment programme in the US, which was billed to make Umar eligible to obtain an American passport.

The EFCC also accused Ramirez of illegally receiving 10,000 dollars from one Olukayode Sodimu under the pretext that the funds were facilitation fees with the American immigration services for an American green card. After Ramirez took his plea, Aigboje requested that he be taken from the custody of EFCC to prison custody.
