37Years Old Nigerian Fraudster Who Threw Bogus Credit Cards Out Of The Window, Is Jailed In The U.K (Pic)

Nigerian fraudster who threw a wallet full of bogus credit cards out of his window as he was about to be arrested has been jailed for two years and four months.

Alexander Akinyele, 37, stole several people's personal details, including those of a 74-year-old man, in order to set up bank and credit card accounts and to buy access to Netflix and Argos, the National Crime Agency (NCA) said. 

Akinyele previously pleaded guilty to ten fraud offences, a Computer Misuse Act Offence and to possession of a false ID with intent.

He was arrested when NCA officers went to his home in August 2016 and he threw a wallet containing eight fraudulent credit and store cards and a forged driving licence out of a window.

The subsequent NCA investigation found he had possession of 500 valid usernames and passwords for online Sky accounts and the same number for BT accounts which he had bought on the internet.

Sentencing him at Preston Crown Court on Tuesday, Judge Heather Lloyd described Akinyele's criminal activity as "a persistent and serious offence".
