ID thief who had Wells Fargo customer info sentenced
Jonah Hanneke Nelson was sentenced Thursday to 58 months in prison following a plea agreement to resolve ID theft and bank fraud charges mentioned previously on this site. As noted last year, when aw enforcement executed a search warrant on his home, they found the names and account numbers of 550 Wells Fargo bank customers.
Neither the press release following the indictment nor the plea agreement indicated how or where he obtained the customers’ information and none of the breach reports we do have from Wells Fargo seem to fit the circumstances. So… how did he obtain the customer information and when and how did Wells Fargo find out about it? If anyone knows or finds out, please let us know.
