A Nigerian rapper Sauce Kid a.k.a Sinzu, who relocated to the United States, is in ‘hot soup’ as he bagged a 2 year jail sentence for stealing $15,388 using stolen credit card numbers in Boise and Meridian, reports say.
According to reports, the rapper stole bank card numbers and identifying information from their owners, encoded the account numbers onto blank plastic cards.
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 23-26 2016.
All of the losses took place at Boise ATMs owned by Idaho Central Credit Union and at Albertsons stores in Meridian, court documents confirm.
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.
Sources say prior to his sentence, Babalola Falemi a.k.a Sauce Kid 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.
