The loans and credit cards that the defendant applied for using the other Myer’s information are-1) Student Loan through RBS Citizens on 11/20/07 for $7,821.232)Student Loan through JP Morgan Chase on 11/20/07 for $6,0003)Kay Jewelers credit card on 10/15/074)Target credit card on 10/15/075)Capital One credit card on 10/4/076)Citibank credit card on 10/3/077)GE Money PayPal credit accountThe defendant made payments on some of the accounts, but defaulted on the JPMorgan Chase Student Loan, and the Capital One and Citibank credit cards for a loss of $6,727.96. The losses on the RBS Citizens student loan and the PayPal account were writtenoff by the companies. The defendant completely paid off the Kay Jewelers credit card.The crime came to law enforcement’s attention when the defendant defaulted on theJP Chase (“Chase”) Student loan. Chase attempted to contact the university, and learned thatno one with the date of birth and social security number listed on the loan application hadattended the university. However, the defendant had provided an accurate address and theywere able to determine that he attended the university and had given false information toobtain the loan. Chase also determined that the defendant had sent the application for theloan to them via facsimile. Chase then contacted the FBI.-2-
