We all loved the comedy classic "Coming To America", the story of an African Prince that comes to the States to look for his Princess. Well, here's a real life "coming to America" story about an African "Prince" who comes to the states not looking for a "bride" but looking for a way to come up on fraudulent cash. Unfortunately, this version doesn't end well for the main character.

The Main Character Is Sobanke Idris Sunday Adereti.

According to the U.S. Attorney's Office, the 24-year-old Adereti was the son of a Nigerian traditional ruler and entered the United States on a visitor’s visa in 2018. Only problem is, that visa expired. Despite his "status", Adereti is going to prison for  passport fraud and attempted bank fraud.

According to court documents, in March 2021, Adereti presented a false passport and a falsely procured certified check when trying to open a bank account in Flower Mound, Texas.

The check was purchased by a fraud victim who was induced into sending money to Adereti, falsely known as “Robinson Elijah.” He was likely acting as a money mule to cash the victim’s checks. When Adereti was arrested, he had additional passports and bank statements in other names in his possession. Investigators determined that Adereti was also connected to scams related to business email compromise fraud and other government program fraud.

A federal grand jury returned an indictment charging Adereti with federal violations on April 7, 2021.
