Posted by on October 3rd, 2019


United Kingdom court has sentenced 56 years old Nigerian Ike Obiamiwe to a collective five years in prison for three counts of money laundering.
Two other persons were jailed alongside Obiamiwe; Daniel Jordan, 36 and Tarun Jain, 50. The three money launderers who pocketed a share of a £1 million ‘rare earth’ metal scam have been jailed.‎
The Commodities Link gave customers the opportunity to invest in baskets of valuable elements; known as ‘rare earths’ when in reality the metal they were selling was almost worthless.
A group of South East-based tricksters charged between seven and two hundred times the actual value of the metal; and asked their victims to pay some of their investments into accounts Ike Obiamiwe, 56 and Daniel Jordan, 36 and Tarun Jain, 50 owned.
On 28 November 2018 they convicted Obiamiwe of three counts of converting criminal property; and on Friday 27 September 2019 sentenced to two years and six months in prison.
Obiamiwe insisted that he was a consultant who gave advice to businesses; and told investigators the money in his bank account had come from a trading company in Dubai.
On 29 November 2018 the court convicted Jordan of two counts of converting criminal property; and on Friday 27 September given a 12-month suspended sentence.
However, the CPS was able to prove the £87,000 in his account was part of the proceeds of the fraud.
Jain tried to deny his involvement by insisting the money he put into an old business account, but the CPS proved his role in this money-laundering operation.
On 15 August 2019, they convicted Jain of three counts of converting criminal property; as well as on Friday 27 September sentenced to two years and four months years in prison.
Alongside some purchases on iTunes. Similarly further investigation found that Jordan had siphoned £80,000 through his accounts.
At Kingston Crown Court on September 27, Jordan, Obiamiwe; and Jain sentenced to a collective five years in prison for three counts of money laundering.
Libby Clark of the CPS, said: “These men tried to hide their act through lies or multiple bank accounts; covering the fact they were actually laundering money that had been gained through an elaborate fraud.”
