Banker Gets Prison and $1.1M Fine for ID Thefts

A former Tampa Florida banker, who pleaded guilty in August 2014 to identity theft, was sentenced to seven and a half years in prison and a fine of $1.17 million.

While working at the bank she opened 292 bank accounts using 146 stolen identities. The sole purpose of the accounts was to launder fraudulently obtained federal income tax refund checks obtained by several co-conspirators, according to court documents.
