Female White-Collar Crime Divas-Mordern Day Thieves
There are some things that will definitely get you prison time and one of those things are illegally obtaining government funds. The post today is about one of those things. I was really dumbfounded when I read about someone doing something of this nature, but as I have said, “if money can be obtained there will always be someone who’s willing to cross the line and get it”. Unfortunately, they will get a stiff punishment to go along with their actions.
Today’s CrimeDiva, Doris Hayes, 37, of Houston, was convicted and sentenced to 33 months in federal prison after pleading guilty to two counts of making false statements involving a Social Security number.
According to the records, Ms. Hayes used her brother’s Social Security number to open a bank account. in order to cash checks that belonged to a dead woman. Ms. Hayes admitted that she opened bank accounts at International Bank of Commerce and University Federal Credit Union using false Social Security numbers, including that of her brother, in order to facilitate a check cashing scheme. Ms. Hayes and the deceased woman’s daughter, Sandra Carrier, 58, of Houston, plotted the scheme together, which lasted over eight years totaling a debt to the government of $177,642. But that’s not all, Ms. Hayes is currently serving time in a state prison for forgery and possession of a controlled substance and has requested that her federal and state time be ran concurrently. Really, wow!!!! The judge denied the request. Different crime, different time. Ms. Hayes will remain in custody pending transfer to a U.S. Bureau of Prisons facility upon completion of her state sentence.
