A calculating Nigerian fraudster nicknamed "Fizzy" because of his love of champagne has seen his millionaire's lifestyle come to a terrible end.
Frank Onyeachonam was jailed this week in the UK for eight years after he successfully conned vulnerable pensioners out of their life savings with a bogus lottery scam to fund his high life of fast cars, champagne and designer clothes. Check out his photos below

Many victims took out high value loans, believing they would be able to pay them back once they received their lottery winnings. As a result, one victim in the United States lost £60,000 and her house, whilst another in the UK ran up debts of £90,000.
Mr Onyeachonam, 38, meanwhile lived an extravagant lifestyle without evidence of any legitimate income. He had a luxury apartment overlooking the River Thames in London, is believed to have owned two houses in Nigeria and drove high-spec cars including a BMW convertible. He frequented a private members’ club in Canary Wharf and would only drink Ace of Spades champagne, at £300 to £500 a bottle.
