Frozen chicken foot scam reported

Posted: Updated:

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - A 25-year-old Baton Rouge man admits he used the Internet, an imaginary company and nonexistent supplies of frozen chicken feet to swindle a combined total of $166,000 from 13 wholesalers.

Chicken feet sometimes are processed into animal feed in this country, but people in China and other Asian countries consider the crunchy items a dining delicacy.

Terence Ndangoh was indicted by a federal grand jury in May on seven counts of wire fraud. The Cameroon national signed a plea agreement in August.

Chief U.S. District Judge Brian A. Jackson sentenced Ndangoh to 21 months in federal prison and ordered him to pay restitution of $138,000 that has not yet been recovered for his bilked buyers.
