According to a snippet of information we picked from Insablog9ja, a Nigerian woman studying in the United States, Oyindamola Akinrinola, has pleaded guilty in a federal court for her role in Nigerian fraud schemes that targeted Americans.

The 23-year-old and her co-conspirators in Nigeria victimized individuals, several of them elderly, through a variety of online scams, said U.S. Attorney, Stephen McAllister. The attorney said Ms. Akinrinola’s co-conspirator in Nigeria orchestrated several scams, such as tricking victims into believing they were eligible for fictitious awards or establishing purported romantic relationships with victims and exploiting their affections. The co-conspirator in Nigeria directed victims to send money to Akinrinola.
