PRLog - Aug. 27, 2014 - DALLAS -- Identity (ID) Thief Sent to Prison

The truth is that we usually do not catch the identity thief.  They are overseas, online, or merely so submergedwe can never find them.  Relying on the police or government agencies to protect you is a false hope.  You must take measures yourself; measures like getting ID theft protection and/or ID theft insurance.  Make sure they block ID theft, and don’t “monitor” it.  If they use the words “credit monitoring,” red flag, run.  Do not sign up.  Make sure they cover all of ID theft and not just financial – that includes Financial ID theft, Child ID theft, Elderly ID theft, Family Fraud, Tax Return Fraud, Benefits Fraud, and Criminal Liability.  Do not settle for less.  Not to take away from the police, as they occasionally do apprehend these thieves.  For example, today, U.S. District Judge Ellen L. Hollander sentenced Tavares Davon Miller, a/k/a “Tavon Jackson,” “Tavon Miller,” and “Ooh,” age 30, of Baltimore, Maryland to 75 months in prison followed by three years of supervised release for conspiring to commit wire fraud and aggravated identity theft, in connection with a scheme to use the personal identifying information of others to purchase motorcycles, electronic equipment, jewelry and other goods. Judge Hollander also entered an order that Miller pay restitution of $105,899.66.

According to his plea agreement, from September 25 through November 1, 2012, Miller acquired the identifying information of more than 10 victims, and used that information to fabricate driver’s licenses and credit cards in the names of those victims, but using the photograph of co-conspirator Monika Hill (where applicable). Miller and Hill traveled to motorcycle dealerships and retail stores in Maryland, Delaware, Virginia and Pennsylvania, and used the fraudulent identification documents to purchase merchandise, including electronic equipment, jewelry and clothing, or apply for lines of credit at those stores. Miller and Hill then loaded the motorcycles and merchandise into their vehicle and returned to Maryland. Miller advertised the motorcycles and merchandise for sale over the internet, retaining the proceeds of the sales and paid Hill a fee for her services.

Judge Hollander determined today that the total amount of loss to the victims is $140,462.03.  Monika Michelle Hill, age 34, of Gwynn Oak, Maryland, pleaded guilty to the same offenses and is scheduled to be sentenced on October 24, 2014 at 2:00 p.m.

United States Attorney Rod J. Rosenstein praised the U.S. Secret Service, Maryland State Police, the Anne Arundel, Howard and Montgomery County Police Departments, Charles County Sheriff’s Office and Fruitland Police Department for their work in the investigation.
