ID Theft Ring Recruited Corrupt Bank Tellers

Two Bronx men have been sentenced to prison for leading an identity theft ring that stole $850,000. They obtained customers' personal identifying information (PII) from bank tellers they recruited.

The ID theft ring operated from July 2010 through June 2014. During that time the corrupt bank tellers gave their confederates customers' account information and Social Security numbers which enabled the ring leaders to withdraw money from victims' accounts.

"between July 2010 and June 2014...corrupt bank tellers passed along personal information from bank customers."
- Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman
