It could all go downhill for Biskit
News from Newham Records today has it that 25 years old BkChatLdn member Biskit (full name: Desmond Uyiosa Abifade) is one of five people sentenced over £610,000 bank theft.
The 5 people involved are Victor Oke, 39 from Galleons Drive, Barking, Desmond Uyiosa Abifade, 25, from Henniker Road, Stratford, Moses Kuye, 28, from Connaught Road, Silvertown, Melinda Mensah-Oke, 37, also from Galleons Drive, Barking and Arinola Kuye, 27, equally from Connaught Road, Silvertown.
Inner London Crown Court heard how Desmond Uyiosa Abifade (Biskit) provided Victor Oke with a stolen data, which he used to falsely mimic company directors through telephone banking.
Having successfully gained access, Victor Oke then diverted funds to ‘mule’ beneficiary accounts monitored by Moses Kuye.
During the whole process, Melinda Mensah-Oke would impersonated company directors when a female voice was needed – with Arinola Kuye acting as the group’s money launderer.
It all went downhill for the group after HSBC fraud investigators passed the case to the dedicated card and payment crime unit (DCPCU) to investigate.
Police were able to trace the transactions, phone calls made and identified the phones used by the group.
All five were charged with conspiracy to commit fraud by false representation, which they pleaded not guilty to.
On Wednesday, Oke was sentenced to four years in prison, while Moses Kuye was jailed for three years and three months.
Mensah-Oke received a fourteen month suspended sentence and Abifade a two year suspended sentence.
Arinola Kuye was given a 12 month community order and instructed to complete 50 hours of unpaid work.
All losses were refunded to the genuine business account holders.
With the news now going viral, Biskit has responded – claiming that he has “nothing to do with it”
“Somebody’s future husband working out in peace, pedalling in grace, please I have nothing to do with this it’s all Gods’ work” – he said on Twitter.
