Used Cars New Hampshire – A 34-year-old New Hampshire man accused of laundering thousands of dollars from several fraudulent schemes, including one that affects Texas retirees. Federal prosecutors said personal identity information from state employees was used in June 2017 to make changes to the account in the Employee Pension System Texas online portal.
Officials alleged in a federal complaint not sealed in Austin on Thursday that bank deposit information on files was changed so that pension payments were transferred to debit cards controlled by Lukman Aminu, Manchester, NH. Prosecutors say Aminu will withdraw money from debit cards to buy money used to pay personal expenses.

Aminu allegedly also used the money to buy used vehicles to be sent abroad to Nigeria and Benin for resale.
Federal complaints say he also received money from victims of other schemes through debit cards that have been opened using their personal identity information.
The US Attorney’s Office in the Western District of Texas says used cars are a common way for fraudulent people in the US to send money to Nigeria – through the value of cars sent – while also cleaning money to make it look like it’s legitimate income.
Aminu is in federal custody in New Hampshire where she is awaiting a detention hearing. He will then be moved to Austin.
If found guilty, he can face up to 20 years in a federal prison.
