A Nigerian self-confessed cyber fraudster and drug-dealer, Dan Aiyegbusi, who was sentenced to five years in jail in the U.K sys he has never worked before in his life.
The 23-year-old cyber fraudster and drug dealer, Dan Aiyegbusi was sentenced on Tuesday, 28 January, 2020, at Southwark Crown Court after admitting that he has never worked a day in his life but colluded with organised hackers to launder stolen money.
Following a proactive investigation by the Met’s Cyber Crime Unit (CCU), he was sentenced Tuesday, 28 January, 2020, at Southwark Crown Court.
He had previously pleaded guilty to five separate counts of money laundering, totalling £41,150; possession with intent to supply Class A drugs (crack cocaine) and Class B drugs (cannabis).
The court heard that in April 2018, a Facebook account was identified in the name of ‘Miyuwa Oluwafemi’ – which was a pseudonym used by Aiyegbusi.
The Facebook account was being used to advertise compromised online bank accounts, with the username and password often having been acquired through cyber-dependent crime such as ‘phishing’.
He pleaded not guilty to three counts of money laundering totalling £2,167,410 and was subsequently found not guilty in relation to these other counts following a trial at Southwark Crown Court in December 2019.
Aiyegbusi had been stopped by officers from Essex Police in Colchester and was found to be in possession of 49 rocks of crack cocaine.
