CAUTION

Boniface Ozoemena Vdu is wanted for his alleged involvement in a nationwide bank fraud/money laundering scam.

Vdu, using the alias Austin Ezeibe, would obtain credit bureau printouts on unsuspecting third parties while he had access to credit bureau computer terminals via his employment at various car dealerships. Using that information, Vdu and his accomplices would apply for and obtain credit cards with convenience checks through a number of financial institutions. They would then have these credit cards and checks sent to drop boxes, which had been opened with fictitious names, in the San Bernardino, California, area. Vdu and his accomplices would deposit the convenience checks into fraudulent accounts in order to raise the account's credit limit, then would extract the cash via ATMs where there were no cameras.

All subjects except Vdu have been convicted and sentenced. Vdu was to be deported by the Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS), but failed to appear for his INS hearing on December 16, 1993. A federal warrant was issued for Vdu's arrest by the United States District Court, Central District of California, Los Angeles, California, on November 19, 1993, after Vdu was charged with conspiracy, mail fraud, fraudulent use of a credit card, money laundering, and possession of fifteen access devices.

If you have any information concerning this person, please contact your local FBI office or the nearest American Embassy or Consulate.
