Virginia Beach man pleads guilty in identity theft, fraud (Bon Secours DePaul Medical Center follow-up)

 

Lauren King reports:

A Virginia Beach man pleaded guilty today to aggravated identity theft and participating in a scheme to defraud Navy Federal Credit Union, according to a news release from the U.S. Attorney’s Office in the eastern district of Virginia.

Jorge Luis Silva-Davalos, 29, is to be sentenced Jan. 22 and faces up to 30 years for the financial institution fraud plus a mandatory, consecutive two-year term in prison for the aggravated identity theft, the news release said.

According to court documents, between December 2007 and February 2008, Silva-Davalos, with others, defrauded financial institutions, including the credit union, by creating bogus car loans using stolen identities of patients from a local hospital and neighbors of a member of the scheme, the news release said.

    It’s getting harder and harder to keep up with all the examples… as this site and PogoWasRight.org illustrate. It’s also frustrating that federal attorneys do not tell us how/where the personal info was stolen in most cases.
