Michigan Woman Charged In ID Scam

NEWARK, N.J. – A Michigan woman is charged in a fraud scheme which, according to the prosecutors, is one of the nation’s largest stolen identity refund fraud schemes, said Federal authorities in New Jersey.

On Thursday, Rosa Marmol, 35, was charged on charges of conspiracy and theft of government property in the form of $1.2 million in U.S. Treasury checks, said U.S. Attorney Paul Fishman. Marmol is one of those 14 individuals who were charged in the fraud scheme that resulted in losses of more than $12 million to the U.S. government.

With the use of personal data of Puerto Rican citizens, more than 8,000 fraudulent U.S. income tax returns were filed in the scheme.
