6 charged in Chicago-area identity theft schemes

CHICAGO — Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan has announced charges against six people accused of stealing nearly $300,000 in separate identity theft schemes.

Five people, ranging in age from 27 to 36, face identity theft and fraud charges for allegedly using stolen identities to take out phony vehicle loans.

After getting checks for up to $40,000 each, prosecutors say the five deposited the money into a bank account they all used.
