ATLANTA - U.S. Marshals arrested a woman wanted in connection with an elaborate scheme involving fraud and identity theft. The suspect was taken into custody Wednesday afternoon at her Fulton County home.
Investigators said the woman moved to Atlanta from Maryland, where she was wanted on 60 counts of fraud and identity theft.
Police said the 38-year-old woman lived in the Atlanta area for two months before she started to steal identities and bank accounts here as well.
The woman is wanted on hundreds of thousands of dollars in fraud.
The woman was arrested and taken to the Fulton County jail.
On Friday January 15, 2010 I was interviewed at my residence about a law enforcement matter by the U.S. Marshal Service (USMS). I told the deputy marshals that my U.S. Social Security disability claim was a "total fraud." Didn't the USMS have the power to arrest me on the spot? My fraud (or "fraud") involves bilking the federal government of $500,000. When I requested that that the USMS refer the matter to the FBI, a deputy marshal refused. I was also told that the type of fraud I was talking about was probably "too difficult" for the FBI to investigate. They dismissed my "admission" as immaterial to their concerns, and moved on with the interview.
Something the deputy marshals didn't seem to appreciate is that the act of fraud is a crime involving moral turpitude, which is directly relevant to the truth and veracity of the statements I made to the USMS. Even if the actual crime of fraud is outside USMS jurisdiction, the crime is material to my honesty with the USMS -- and my "admission" should have elicited some inquiry from them.
They were doing a threat investigation, but they accepted without question the word of a fraudster, someone clever enough to carry out a major financial fraud on the U.S. government?
Tell me that makes any sense!
Were the deputy marshals unconcerned with the truth of my statements because they were incompetent? Or was the reason they were unconcerned with my truthfulness that they didn't have genuine law enforcement concerns? Is it possible they were solely concerned with carrying out the wishes of a political appointee at the Justice Department who wanted to intimidate me? Was the U.S. Marshal Service used as a naive dupe of an ongoing fraud and racketeering conspiracy?
