United States v. Seth Nyamekye



  • Case Summary: According to court documents and trial testimony, Nyamekye was involved in laundering the proceeds of online romance scams that resulted in millions of dollars in losses. The scammers created multiple profiles on online dating sites and contacted individuals across the United States, establishing relationships before requesting money for investments or other reasons. Nyamekye controlled one of the bank accounts provided by the scammers and received over $1.3 million in fraud proceeds. Nyamekye conspired with others between June 2016 and February 2018 to commit money laundering, using multiple transactions exceeding $10,000 to conceal the fraudulent nature of the proceeds.

  • Victims: Numerous victims sent their money directly to Nyamekye's bank account under the name Gloseth Ventures LLC. For instance, one victim sent $170,000, believing they were helping a military member, while another victim sent two wire transfers totaling $73,000 to someone they believed to be in the military overseas. Another victim, who thought she was engaged to the scammer, sent $50,000 to Nyamekye's account.

  • Charges: Money Laundering (Title 18, United States Code, Section 1957)

  • Judgment Result: Nyamekye was charged in October 2020 and indicted in May 2021. He faces a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison for each of the 18 counts, and up to 10 years for each of the remaining 17 counts.
