Description: Alexandria, VA - Woman Sentenced for Freddie Mac and Veterans Affairs ID Theft
A woman who used personally identifiable information stolen from employees of the Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation (Freddie Mac) and the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) was sentenced today to 5 1/2 years in prison.
Allise Jones, 29, of Lanham, Maryland, was convicted by a federal jury on February 16. According to court documents and evidence presented at trial, Jones conspired with others to use personally identifiable information (PII) about current and former employees of Freddie Mac, the VA, and others. From October 2012 to April 2014, Jones and her co-conspirators had access to PII from over 100 VA employees and more than 2,000 Freddie Mac employees and affiliates. Jones and her co-conspirators used that information to obtain fraudulent identification documents and credit accounts used to defraud financial institutions, retailers, and others. Jones used the information to obtain credit cards she used to purchase goods and services such as plastic surgery, expensive jewelry, and travel.
Outcome: Defendant was sentenced to 5.5 years in prison.
