(UNDATED) - Three Nigerian nationals were given prison sentences for operating an international fraud network that bilked thousands of victims out of millions of dollars by enlisting them to cash counterfeit checks and money orders.

30-year-old Oladimeji Ayelotan was given a 95-year sentence; 31-year-old Rasaq Raheem was given a 115-year sentence; and 45-year-old Femi Mewase was given a 25-year sentence, the Department of Justice says.

They are among 21 defendants who have been charged in the case.
