Chicago Man Charged in Conspiracy to Sell U.S. Government Checks Stolen From the Mail

CHICAGO —A Chicago man has been indicted on federal criminal charges for allegedly conspiring with a U.S. Postal Service employee and others to sell U.S. government checks stolen from the mail.

An indictment returned Monday in federal court in Chicago charges AKEEM KOSOKO, 26, with one count of conspiracy to steal mail and government funds, three counts of embezzlement of government property, and three counts of receipt of stolen mail.  Arraignment has not yet been scheduled.

According to the indictment, Kosoko conspired with his brother, who worked as a postal carrier, and others to have U.S. Treasury checks taken from the mail and sold to others. 

The checks were issued last year as part of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act. 

Kosoko’s brother, AHMED KOSOKO, 35, of Chicago, was previously charged by federal criminal complaint with one count of conspiracy to steal mail and government funds.

The indictment was announced by John R. Lausch, Jr., United States Attorney for the Northern District of Illinois; Emmerson Buie, Jr., Special Agent-in-Charge of the Chicago Field Office of the FBI; Andre Martin, Special Agent-In-Charge of the Chicago Great Lakes Area Field Office of the U.S. Postal Service Office of Inspector General; William Hedrick, Inspector-in-Charge of the U.S. Postal Inspection Service in Chicago; and Tamera Cantu, Acting Special Agent-in-Charge of the IRS Criminal Investigation Division in Chicago.  The government is represented by Special Assistant U.S. Attorney M. Claire Nicholson.


The public is reminded that an indictment is not evidence of guilt.  Defendants are presumed innocent and entitled to a fair trial at which the government has the burden of proving guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.  If convicted, the Court must impose reasonable sentences under federal statutes and the advisory U.S. Sentencing Guidelines.

  1. Just sweet Muslims, who should be deported.

    What about the other 200 in the Chicago area who did the same thing, but remain free as boo birds?

  2. As was written by the Prophet, “Ye shall destroy the lands of the Stupid Infidels, then ye shall take their daughters into your harems, and make eunuchs of their male offspring.”

  3. I’m glad soon enough we will have many more of the likes of Akeem and Ahmed.

    Their culture sure does add to ours.


    This should be sent to the Supreme court panel who don’t want to do their job as well..

    here ya go…
