For Bank Fraud By Tokumboh Adeogun At Truist and Wells Fargo Consular Notification Offered at SDNY

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Decrypt - LightRead - Honduras - Source

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Jan 28 – Tokumboh Adeogun was presented on charged of bank fraud and aggrevated identity theft on January 28 before U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Magistrate Judge James L. Cott.  

   According to the underlying complaint, Tokumboh Adeogun's scheme got a lottery-seeking victim to wire money from Simmons Bank in Arkansas to a fraudulent account at SunTrust, now Truist Bank. Wells Fargo Bank was also used.   

  During the presentment, Magistrate Judge Cott informed Tokumboh Adeogun of his right of consular notification, but did not ask - perhaps from good intentions - whether Tokumboh Adeogun is or is not a US citizen. One wonders from online research whether Nigerian diplomats in New York including Amina J. Mohammed or Tijjani Muhammad-Bande are aware, or care. 

   Online research also finds previously complaints against a Tokumboh Adeogun, like here: "i started to talk to this guy , he say he lives in England . i ordered 5 phones from him... first he say to pay 50% to gain my confidence and the rest after package receive. after one day he say to me the package was stopped in ucraina [sic] and will not go if i not pay the rest of 50%, so i pay the rest of 50%. after 4-5 days he told me that the package arrived in port and is blocked there and i should pay more money , then i realized that something was wrong and i refused to send more money. The name of who i paid is : tokumboh adeogun, 537 chester street brooklyn, new york."   

 So why did Wells Fargo and SunTrust / Truist open those accounts? Inner City Press will continue to follow this. The case is US v. Adeogun, 20-cr-38 (Castel / Cott).
