I have never worked a day in my life – Jailed fraudster/drug dealer


A self-confessed cyber fraudster and drug-dealer, Dan Aiyegbusi, has been jailed for five years in the U.K.

Following a proactive investigation by the Met’s Cyber Crime Unit (CCU), he was sentenced Tuesday, 28 January, 2020, at Southwark Crown Court.

He had admitted to never working a day in his life and colluded with organised hackers in the UK and internationally to launder stolen money.

Aiyegbusi had previously pleaded guilty to five separate counts of money laundering, totalling £41,150; possession with intent to supply Class A drugs (crack cocaine) and Class B drugs (cannabis). .

The court heard that in April 2018, a Facebook account was identified in the name of ‘Miyuwa Oluwafemi’ – which was a pseudonym used by Aiyegbusi.

The Facebook account was being used to advertise compromised online bank accounts, with the username and password often having been acquired through cyber-dependent crime such as ‘phishing’.
