DETROIT (WWJ) – An identity theft scheme is sending two brothers and a sister to prison.
The U.S. attorney’s office says Anthony and Christopher Gandy, and Sharon Gandy-Micheau stole identification and social security cards from people to help in their conspiracy that involved over 20 fake income tax returns. The IRS mailed them a number of refund checks totaling $940,000.
The three opened post office boxes and bank accounts to get the proceeds of the scheme.
They’ll be sentenced on mail fraud, identify theft, and money laundering charges in August.
