A woman who was a temporary employee at a Chicago AT&T office has been indicted, accused by prosecutors of stealing personal info from 2,100 of the company’s employees.
Two more women, allegedly working in concert with the first, are accused of using the data to steal $70,000 through payday-loan applications. Prosecutors say they all forged driver’s licenses and set up bank accounts as part of the scheme, then had the money wired to them. They face federal wire fraud charges and ID theft.
If convicted, the women could get up to 20 years in prison for each count.
