An identity theft scheme that started in 2013, spanned 31 states, and illegally garnered over $200,000 has been stopped by federal authorities after an arrest was made on May 14, the San Antonio Express-News reported.
The arrest led to the arraignment of 47-year-old Freeport resident Seerojnie Ram, who was charged with grand larceny, among other crimes.
According to the acting district attorney of Nassau County and the United States Postal Inspection Service acting inspector, more arrests are expected to follow.
Authorities said Ram acquired lists of dead people, employees at private companies, and customers who have rights to discounts because of their disabilities, and used their identities to obtain various sums of money.
