    Details:
     

    Between August 2, 2012 and August 8, 2012 the three suspects entered the Suncoast Schools Federal Credit Union at 1370 Oakfield Drive, 6804 E. Hillsborough Avenue and 950 W. Fletcher Avenue and opened accounts. The suspects used counterfeit identification and identities of victims that live in three different states. Three loans were then applied for, via the internet, for each fraudulently obtained account. Detectives were able to determine that the I.P. address that was used was at the Downtown Courtyard Marriott. The suspects were then contacted to return to Suncoast Schools FCU to obtain the fraudulently obtained loan money totaling $152,000.

    On August 15, 2012 at noon, one of the applicant suspects arrived at the 1920 E. Hillsborough Avenue, FCU branch. The suspect was then followed to the Downtown Marriott where the three suspects were arrested. A search warrant was then obtained for the hotel room where additional identities were discovered. This case was worked by Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office Economics Crimes Unit and the Secret Service.
