Nigerian rapper, Babalola Falemi (a.k.a Sauce Kid) has been sentenced to a 2-year jail term for stealing $15,388 using stolen credit card numbers in Boise and Meridian.
This is coming shortly after another Nigerian artiste, DammyKrane, was arrested and locked up for similar offence by US authorities.
According to the court charge, Sauce Kid reportedly stole bank card numbers and identifying information from their owners. He then encoded the account numbers onto blank plastic cards.
It was gathered that before now, he was initially charged with conspiracy to commit bank fraud, eight counts each of bank fraud, aggravated identity theft, and possession of 15 or more fraudulent bank cards.
All of the losses took place at Boise ATMs owned by Idaho Central Credit Union and at Albertsons stores in Meridian, court documents alleged.
According to Idaho Stateman News, he then used an automated system to change account PINs and was able to withdraw cash from bank ATMS and buy merchandise from stores between July 23 and 26, 2016.
Police arrested Sauce Kid at the Boise Airport as he was about to board a flight. He was caught with a card encoding device and more than $6,000 in cash.
