Nigerian Accused in Scheme to Swindle Citibank

Why pull a Nigerian scam on one person for a few bucks when you can pull it on Citibank for $27 million?

Citibank received two dozen faxed requests for money to be wired, and it transferred $27 million to accounts controlled by the conspirators in Japan, South Korea, Australia, China, Cyprus and the United States, the complaint says. Citibank called the officials whose names and numbers it had been given to verify the transactions, prosecutors said. The numbers turned out to be for cell phones in Nigeria.
