Photo: US-based Nigerian Musician Sentenced For Attempting To Steal $3.5 Million In Tax Refunds


A Nigerian musician living in St. Louis pleaded guilty to stealing tax refunds last year and was sentenced to over three years in federal prison on Thursday, April 21.
According to investigators, 29-year-old Olufunso Adesina, a guitarist  tried to steal more than $3 million in fake tax refunds but many didn’t go through. He ended up collecting nearly $800,000 from more than 50 refunds by filing false tax returns under other people’s names.
In November 2015, the U.S. Attorney’s office in St. Louis announced charges against Adesina. Prosecutors say Adeshina has left the area, and urge anyone with information about his whereabouts to contact the Internal Revenue Service’s criminal investigation division.
Prosecutors say Adeshina participated in a stolen identity tax fraud scheme. IRS investigators allegedly found tax refunds due to several people deposited in numerous accounts in the name of Adeshina or businesses he controlled. The criminal complaint claims that nearly $200,000 has flowed into more than 20 accounts controlled by Adeshina since the start of the year.
Three local banks helped investigators in the bust after noticing suspicious behavior. Adeshina could face a maximum sentence of ten years in prison.
