Nigerian facing fraud charges in scam against woman

GULFPORT, Miss. —A Nigerian man living in Canada has been extradited to Mississippi to face charges alleging he was part of an international cybercrime ring.

Prosecutors accuse Adekunle Adefila of using romance scams, work-at-home schemes and other means to commit financial crimes said to represent millions of dollars in losses.

The Sun Herald reported that Adefila is being held for a detention hearing Monday. Court records show prosecutors want him held with no bond.

Adefila pleaded not guilty Thursday to charges of money laundering, attempt and conspiracy to commit fraud and conspiracy to commit offenses against the U.S.

He is among more than a dozen people indicted after Homeland Security Investigations agents in Gulfport were notified in 2011 that a Harrison County woman reported she was the victim of a sweetheart scam.
