An American defrauds Nigerians of $565,000 over Green Card

An American has defrauded a Nigerian of $565,000 over Green Card in Lagos, Nigeria without having to struggle a bit.

The American, Marco Ramirez, was arraigned Thursday before a court in Lagos after duping some Nigerians out of $565,000 (about N203.4m) by promising them an easy access to Green Card.

Ramirez, in 2013, promised some Nigerians that he could help them get a U.S Green card and thus took monies from them in bits.

The victims, identified as Ambassador Godson Echejue, Abubakar Sodiq and Olukayode Sodimu, paid Ramirez $565,000 in total to help them get the green card but he failed to deliver on his promise.

According to reports, he was originally arraigned before court in 2017 and granted bail in the sum of $25,000, but the case was transferred to a new judge mid-trial.

On his court appearance Thursday, he pleaded not guilty once again and was granted bail, with the case adjourned till October.

He is currently walking free whiles awaiting his court case in October.
