In seven properties Mr Ogoe continued to pretend to be a landlord even while on court bail.
He produced documents claiming to be a doctor, a security manager and a catering manager. In reality, he was a temporary security guard. On a number of occasions, he evicted people without notice if they failed to pay an increase in rent immediately.
In sentencing Ogoe, Judge Kay QC at Luton crown Court told him: “You saw an opportunity to rent relatively sizable properties and sublet them to desperate individuals who needed somewhere to live. You were not providing a public service because you did this for greed.”
Ogoe, who pleaded guilty, will now serve 16 months and pay £7,500 in costs. The court also ordered that the computers used to create the false documents be forfeited.
His sister, Rebecca Ogoe was given a conditional discharge as the judge felt her brother had manipulated her in this case.
