Following a tip from Christie’s sale house, London-based Nigerian man who British specialists portrayed as a “go-to tax criminal for fraudsters all around the globe” has been indicted.

In March 2016, experts got a tip from Christie’s that programmers had endeavored to mimic a worker’s email address to occupy a client’s installment. The record was followed to Akinwale east London home a month later, where he was captured.
