A good day for the U.S, and a bad day for a Nigerian name,  Babajide Ayowole Ogunnubi, 38 years, who has been arrested on theft charges for his part in a classified ad scam, which was said to involve a local newspaper and a Walmart in Beaumont, Texas.

He was said to have convinced one Linda Lazard Franks, 56, to sign for money orders and other financial transactions and then give the money to him. .

Franks told the police that Ogunnubi told her that he had lots of friends in the Houston and Beaumont areas who would send money to him. The police revealed that Ogunnubi stole at least $3,124.56 between Oct. 22 and Nov 28, 2017. .

He is being held on $100,000 bond. For her part in all this, Franks faces 5 felonies. She is accused of stealing more than $28,000 in 9 days through 28 fraudulent transactions. She remains in the Eagle County jail on $30,000 bond. Another one in the cup.
