A Nigerian man identified as Kelechi Cosmos Emeh was reportedly arrested in Australia for a $400k scam.
The Nigerian man who lives Queensland, Australia, reportedly posed as a U.S soldier and initiated a romantic relationship with a woman who sent him $370,000. Kelechi who was accused of asking his victim to send him another $170,000, appeared in the Brisbane Magistrates Court on Friday after he was arrested at his Durack home on Thursday.
The Nigerian man who has been in Australia for two years and lives in a rented apartment in Durak with his partner, a permanent citizen, since entering the country, allegedly received the money over the course of three months from the 34-year-old Brisbane woman, who later contacted police and sparked the investigation.
