Nigerian man and his wife charged in ID and Credit Card fraud


Charles Okafor, 27, was initially arrested in Seminole County, Florida in March on multiple fraud and grand theft charges and got out 19 days later on $30,000 bail but his freedom was short-lived. Police who were investigating additional cases of
fraud and money laundering against him, found him the next day.


He was charged with communications fraud, fraudulent use of a victim, 7 counts of fraudulent use of personal identification information and 5 counts of conspiracy money laundering transactions. While in the Seminole County jail, he had called his wife, Judienne Okafor, 31, to destroy evidence in his credit card fraud and identity theft case but police got to his apartment in time to catch her with papers being burned in a bathroom sink.

She said the papers were the ones Okafor ordered her to destroy. Charles Okafor is also a suspect in fraud cases that DeLand police are currently investigating. But for now, he is being held in the Volusia County Branch Jail on a $250,000 bail….. he is urging well meaning Nigerians in d U.S to pls donate towards meeting his bail condition…..
