The United States of America has arraigned Nigerian fraudsters arrested from Los Angeles garage in connection with multiple online scams and money laundering.
According to ABCNews, the suspects were arraigned in a federal court on Friday following their arrest on Thursday.
“It was not immediately known if they had attorneys who could speak on their behalf,” the ABCNews reported.
It added that two of the suspects were previously in custody and a few others were arrested earlier this week.
Nick Hanna, United States’ attorney for the Central District of California, said he hoped to be able to work with foreign governments to extradite the remaining defendants.
They all face charges of conspiracy to commit fraud, conspiracy to launder money, and aggravated identity theft, and some are charged with additional offences for alleged fraud and money laundering.
