HOUSTON, TX: The U.S. Postal Inspection Service investigated a case of a years-long fraud operation which included a sweepstakes scheme, a stolen identity scheme, and money laundering which resulted in the arrest and extradition of a Nigerian citizen residing in Canada. According to the indictment, 50 yr-old Harry Cole (aka Akintomide Ayoola Bolu, aka John King, aka Big Bro, aka Egbon) faces federal charges for his participation in the Toronto-based scams which targeted the elderly and amounted to approximately $900 million in total actual losses. In partnership with IRS and HSI special agents, Inspectors brought Cole to justice along with seven co-conspirators, three of whom are residents of Texas, and four Nigerian citizens residing in Canada.
