Third of five sentenced in ID theft, tax refund fraud scheme – Sun

A third person has been sentenced for his role in an identity theft tax refund fraud scheme involving five people, U.S. Attorney Wifredo A. Ferrer announced Friday.

Marquis Onigirin Moye, 24, of Pompano Beach, got more than four years in federal prison, plus three years probation after pleading guilty to aggravated identity theft and possession of unauthorized access devices such as refund debit cards, prosecutors said.

Co-defendants Angela Dione Rosier, 41, of Coral Springs, and Tiffany Shenae Cooper, 33, of Deerfield Beach, were sentenced Feb. 28 to more than four years in prison and three years probation. They also were ordered to pay $129,390 in restitution to the Internal Revenue Service and the medical services provider whose database had been breached, according to court documents.

Moye helped Rosier get the user names and passwords of fellow employees at the medical services company so Cooper could obtain the personal information of about 250 patients. That personal information was sold with instructions on how to file false income tax refund claims, court records stated.

Co-defendants Michael Ali Bryant Sr., 41, and wife Latina Rashawn Bryant, 43, both of Lauderdale Lakes, also pleaded guilty and face up to 12 years in prison when sentenced in April, prosecutors said.
