Maryland Based Nigerian Jailed 15 Years For $11.6Million Tax Refunds Fraud..Emmanuel Kazeem Used 91,000 Stolen Identities To File Tax Returns

The mastermind of a plot to obtain millions from the United States IRS has been jailed.

35-year-old Emmanuel Kazeem, a resident of Bowie in Maryland was on Thursday sentenced to 15 years in prison in Oregon for Identity theft and tax fraud.

Emmanuel and his accomplices allegedly used 91,000 stolen identities they obtained from a Vietnamese hacker to file for tax refunds.

Although they managed to file over 10,000 fraudulent refunds that fetched them over $11.6million, they were exposed when a woman noticed that someone had filed false tax returns on behalf of her and her husband.

She alerted the IRS which swung into action and tracked down Emmanuel Kazeem and his group.

  1. Why can’t u Nigerians stop disgracing your country.
    I married one of you, he took all my properties and left me with nothing. Is it a cause or what is going on

    • Janet Mario I really feel for you but I think you should have seen in between the lines that some was not right about the Nigeria guy you dated and duped you

  2. Janet Mario you should have married someone from your Country. No one begged or forced you to marry a Nigerian. Why were you so careless to allow a man to dupe you of your properties. What non Nigerian girls don’t realise is that you have to be super smart to deal with a Nigerian man. They wine, dine and dazzle you with money and you silly girls fall in love. When you are duped you start lamenting.
