Three Cameroonians Facing Charges In the US For Money Laundary


Three African nationals from Cameroon are facing charges in an organized, intra-national internet fraud scheme uncovered in western Pennsylvania.

Lawrence Njabon Francis, 37, and Lawrence Nana Tchakounte, 26, attend Slippery Rock University on student visas. Both have been arrested and bond has been set at $100,000(62 000 000 F CFA.
A third man, Emmenuel Nkwate, 31, entered the country through Mexico claiming refugee status. Police are still searching for Nkwate.
The victims were from all over the country, from New Jersey to Kentucky. They wired the money, but never got their puppy.
“[A total of] $20,000(12 400 000F CFA) has been identified as being stolen from these individuals,” said Trooper Long. “It’s not out of realm that we’re going to get up to $50,000, $60,000, according to investigators.”
Through the course of their investigation, police also discovered forged documents including, driver’s licenses, registration plates and business checks. Evidence of fake passports was also found.
All are facing a list of charges including, corrupt organizations, forgery, insurance fraud and money laundering.
