The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has arrested Adekunle Ojo, a Nigerian, who has spent less than 14 months in the United States.
Ojo was been arrested in Durham, North Carolina and charged with fraud and identity theft offences.
The offences stemmed from Ojo’s phishing scheme, using an AOL and GMail email accounts that targeted school districts in Connecticut and Minnesota in an effort to get employees’ personal information and file bogus tax returns.
His arrest was announced Friday by Deirdre M. Daly, United States Attorney for the District of Connecticut, Patricia M. Ferrick, Special Agent in Charge of the New Haven Division of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and Joel P. Garland, Special Agent in Charge of Internal Revenue Service Criminal Investigation in New England.
Following his arrest at his Durham residence, Ojo appeared before a US magistrate judge in Greensboro, NC, and was ordered detained pending his transfer to the District of Connecticut.
Prosecutors said a school district employee in Glastonbury, Connecticut, received an email in February that appeared to be sent by another employee, who asked for tax information for 1,600 school district workers.
The worker who received the email then forwarded the information, which was used in the scheme to file 122 bogus tax returns seeking nearly $600,000 in refunds, authorities said.
Officials said the Internal Revenue Service processed about six of the fake returns and electronically deposited nearly $37,000 in refunds to various bank accounts.
“Investigators linked the email sent to the employee to Ojo,” prosecutors said.
Officials also believe Ojo was involved in similar email schemes targeting school districts in Groton, Connecticut, and Bloomington, Minnesota.
In March, a Groton school employee emailed tax information of 1,300 employees in response to an email that appeared to be from the superintendent of schools.
Authorities said the information was used to file about 66 fraudulent tax returns seeking about $364,000 in refunds.
Officials said the fake returns were not processed because they had been flagged as being part of an identity theft scheme after school employees discovered the problem.
Prosecutors also said they linked the email account used by Ojo to a similar scam that obtained tax information for about 2,800 school employees in Bloomington earlier this year.
Eric Placke, a federal public defender in North Carolina who represented Ojo only for his initial court appearance, declined to comment Friday. It’s not clear who Ojo’s attorney will be in Connecticut.
Authorities said Ojo entered the US in May 2016 on a visitor’s visa and failed to leave on his scheduled departure date in June 2016.
Daly urged the public to double-check links and email addresses before clicking on and responding to them, to avoid becoming an identity theft victim.

African-American Man Kidnaps Racist White Woman, Forces Her To Watch 9-Hour Film About Slavery
An African American man allegedly kidnapped a racist white woman and forced her to watch 1977 slavery mini-series Roots to “understand her racism”.
The 52-year-old man, Robert Noye, allegedly kidnapped the racist white woman who called the Cedar Rapids Police Department in Iowa to arrest him on Monday on charges of first-degree harassment and false imprisonment.
According to the complaint, Noye allegedly forced the woman to sit with him at a local residence to watch the mini-series on slavery which runs for 9-hours. When the woman attempted to leave, Noye told her to “remain seated and watch the movie with him or he would kill her and spread her body parts across Interstate 380 on the way to Chicago“, according to the Gazette.
The slavery mini-series Roots is about author Alex Haley’s family line which he first penned in a novel in 1976 before it was filmed in 1977.
Robert Noye is currently in police custody on his two charges.
Why You Should Never Use Toilet Rolls After Pooing — Doctor Warns
Nigerian doctor has warned that people should never use toilet rolls also called tissue paper to wipe their anus after pooing as it poses health risk.
Doctor Olufunmilayo took to social media to share some of the health harms that many who use toilet rolls to wipe their anus are not aware they face.
NEVER use a toilet-roll after you shit.
NEVER use a toilet-roll after you shit.
Can tear your anus,
Waste of time/money,
Leaves your anus dirty and smelly,
Can give you urine infection,
Stains your pant/boxers with shit.
Toilet rolls are bad for your anus.
Pls RT for someone.
The real problem with a toilet roll is that it actually does NOT clean your anus properly. What a toilet roll does is to take off the top shit and smear the rest of the shit across your anus (and anus hair if you have some).
This left over shit can cause you medical problems.
So what’s the BEST way to clean your anus after you shit?
Use soap and water!
Washing your anus with soap and water after you shit remains the MOST EFFECTIVE way of cleaning.
If no soap (or time),
The next best way is to use water only.
If no soap and water,
Use wet wipes.
If you use toilet at work,
Or you may use a public toilet where getting soap and water may not be available, may waste time or the water may be too dirty,
Use wet wipes.
Wet wipes are your best bet in that situation. Always carry wet wipes in your bag or car.
That’s the advice.
So why is toilet roll very bad for you?
1. Toilet roll if you use it too hard because you want to “clean well”, can cause tears in your anus (medically called anal fissures). This can cause you very serious pain when next you poo and open up your anus area up for infection.
2. Toilet roll if you use it softly because you don’t want to hurt your anus, will leave leftover shit in your anus area which would make you have a smelly dirty itchy bottom that stains your underwear.
This is why many of you are always itching your bumbum- but you don’t know.
3. For women if you use toilet roll and you wipe from back to front- you are at risk of introducing bacteria inside the shit into your vagina area and this can cause urine infections.
This is why after a while you notice you start to have lower tummy pain and pain when you pee.
4. So in conclusion,
Toilet rolls are a waste of time, waste of money and a health hazard for you if you use them after you shit.
They will cause you harm and they actually do a very poor job of cleaning your anus.
NEVER use toilet rolls after you shit.
They are bad for you.
There’s NOTHING posh about toiletrolls.
There’s NOTHING classy about toiletrolls. I’m emphasising this for those who have been blackmailed into thinking washing your anus with water after you shit is “ghetto” or not classy.
Using a toilet roll after you shit is the real ghetto.
Please after you shit:
Wash your anus with soap and water, if you can and if you have the means.
Or Wash with water alone
Or use wet wipes- if in a hurry and there’s no soap or water.
Please NEVER use toilet rolls after you shit. You are harming yourself and wasting your money.
