A Nigerian man accused of stealing about $700,000 from the city of Fort Worth, Texas, through a phishing email scam, has been sentenced to 12 years in prison.
.
.
Gbenga Fadipe, 50, had pleaded guilty to theft of property greater than $300,000, in 372nd District Court. In October 2017, the city’s accounts payable department received a change of account request.
.
.
The request, actually a scam email, used the name of two employees of Imperial Construction. One of the names was legitimate.
.
.
The person who wrote the email asked the department to change an electronic deposit from Plains Capital Bank to a Chase Bank account and included a copy of a check with the new account and routing numbers.
.
.
Imperial Construction later told authorities that the signature of the legitimate employee referred to in the email had been forged.
.
.
Fort Worth’s Account Payable department made the change of bank accounts with the belief that Imperial Construction had changed banks.
.
.
Fadipe had access to the new Chase Bank account and began to make a series of withdraws of thousands of dollars in cash from Houston bank machines.
.
.
Within two weeks of liquidating all the funds that totaled $693,625.77, Fadipe flew from the United States to London and Nigeria. He eventually returned to the United States and was arrested near Houston.
