ILLEGAL ALIEN SENTENCED FOR I.D. THEFT TO COLLECT $800,000 IN TAX REFUNDS

Posted on Updated on

  • Abdou Koudos Adissa, an illegal alien from the Republican of Benin in West Africa, stole Americans’ identities to file tax returns with the Internal Revenue Service to collect more than $800,000 in tax refunds

 

Abdou Koudos Adissa, an illegal alien from the Republican of Benin, was sentenced to four years in federal prison for his part in a tax fraud scheme, the Department of Justice (DOJ) announced.

According to court records, Adissa was convicted of conspiring to commit access device fraud in March for his involvement in the tax scheme that ran from February to June 2014. During that time, Adissa was a part of a group that stole Americans’ identities to file tax returns with the Internal Revenue Service.

Adissa’s co-conspirators filed the fraudulent tax returns, stealing more than $800,000 in refunds which was then deposited onto Green Dot pre-paid debit accounts. That money was eventually sent to Nigeria through Western Union.

When federal officials raided Adissa’s apartment in Philadelphia, they found 106 of the Green Dot cards. The illegal alien registered all the debit cards using stolen American IDs before giving co-conspirators the cards’ direct deposit information so they would be able to direct the fraudulent tax refunds to the cards.

Adissa called Western Union some 63 times to transfer the stolen $800,000 to Nigeria

ILLEGAL ALIEN ARRESTED WALKING WITH SEVERED HEAD OF HIS MOTHER AND A KNIFE

Posted on

 

An 18-year-old illegal alien Oliver Machada was arrested after he was found walking down the street with severed head of his mother and a knife.

ABC 11 reported:

The Franklin County District Attorney said Tuesday that 18-year-old Oliver Mauricio Funes Machada will be moved to Central Prison because it’s “more appropriate for any special needs he may have.”

Machada is being held without bond on a first-degree murder charge after deputies say he decapitated his mother at their home on Morgan Drive near Stonehill Drive just south of U.S. Highway 64 Monday afternoon. The area is east of Zebulon – near the Wake County line.

At a a preliminary hearing Tuesday, both the prosecution and defense said they expect mental health to be an issue in the case. According to court documents, Machada took four different medications for psychosis and schizophrenia.

Federal officials also said Tuesday that Machada is in the country illegally and they’ve issued an immigration detainer for him.

“ICE is focused on identifying, arresting and removing public safety threats, such as convicted criminal aliens and gang members, as well as individuals who have violated our nation’s immigration laws,” a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokesperson told ABC11.

Local investigators called it a horrific crime.

“Officers encountered the suspect holding a knife and, as reported, also holding his mother’s head in the other arm,” Franklin County Sheriff’s Office Chief of Staff Terry Wright said.
