Nigerian scam ringleader sentenced after NH undercover ATM bust

MANCHESTER - Oluwaseun Adekoya, 29, will serve more than three years in jail after being convicted on charges of stealing $960,000 from N.H. ATMs, according to federal prosecutors.

Adekoya, who is currently living in New Jersey, used the email address "" to purchase sixteen social security numbers and commit fraudulent wire transfers. An undercover N.H. agent communicated through email with Adekoya, leading to the sting in October 2013.

Adekoya, working with four accomplices, targeted several financial institutions, including St. Mary's Bank and People's United Bank in Manchester.

The four accomplices traveled from Atlanta, Ga., to Manchester and used more than 200 fraudulent ATM cards to make withdrawals, according to a statement from the office of New Hampshire Attorney General John P. Kacavas.

Adekoya was previously charged with theft by deception, wrongful impersonation, and conspiracy for a similar incident in 2013.
