A Nigerian man has been sentenced to three years and five months in prison by a US judge after he pleaded guilty to taking part in email scams to defraud thousands of victims around the world of millions of dollars, US prosecutors said.

David Chukwuneke Adindu, 30, was sentenced by District Judge Paul Crotty in Manhattan.

‘We lost £120,000 in an email scam but the banks won’t help get it back’

Prosecutors said in a court filing on Tuesday that Adindu tricked victims into wiring more than $25m into bank accounts he opened in China, where they said the funds would be difficult for victims in the United States to recover.

Gary Conroy, a lawyer for Adindu, said the Nigerian’s role consisted mostly of setting up bank accounts in China and Hong Kong. He noted that the sentence was substantially less than the 97 to 121 months called for by federal guidelines.
