A conman who helped steal more than £2m from the Olympic Development Authority after posing as a Skanska employee has been gaoled for three and half years.
Ansmana Kamara, 31, from Sierra Leone, was sentenced at Southwark Crown Court in April after pleading guilty to a range of fraud charges.
A gang of fraudsters including Kamara contacted the ODA last year claiming to be from Skanska and asked for future payments to be transferred to a new bank account.
The ODA transferred £2.3m into the bogus account, but were alerted of the scam by police when Kamara tried to transfer £2m to Nigeria.
It is understood the ODA has recovered most of the money say Building and Construction Enquirer.
