The Nigerian man who lives Queensland, Australia, impersonated a U.S soldier and romantically scammed a woman off $370,000. 

Kelechi’s greed got the best of him as he demanded the lady send him another $170,000. This led to his arrest. 

He appeared in the Brisbane Magistrates Court on Friday after the arrest at his Durak home on Thursday.

Kelechi had been in the country on a student visa, where he claimed to be a U.S soldier in Syria after tracking the lady in October, 2018 on social media.
