Fraud Involving a Stolen Identity Gets a Man Jail Time

In a case of identity fraud in Massachusetts, a man from New Jersey was given a sentence.

U.S. District Court Judge Patti B. Saris gave Jose Irizarry, 46, of Union City, N.J., a sentence of five years in prison and three years of being watched after getting out. In January, he admitted to conspiring to commit wire fraud, wire fraud, aggravated identity theft, and giving a false Social Security number.

Prosecutors say that Irizarry went to Massachusetts car dealerships between October 2017 and January 2019 to buy late-model cars and apply for 100% financing. When filling out applications, Irizarry used stolen biographical information about real U.S. citizens, fake Puerto Rico driver’s licenses, and Social Security cards in those names as proof of who he was.

He used the stolen identities to open illegal bank accounts and credit cards and buy cars, many of which he sent out of the country. Irizarry got car loans and bought three cars worth a total of $140,124 using stolen identities. When he was sentenced, he was held responsible for losses of between $550,000 and $1.5 million.

In September 2020, a criminal complaint was filed against Irizarry and several other defendants. In October 2020, a federal grand jury indicted Irizarry and the other defendants for their part in the conspiracy.

Irizarry was also charged in the State of New Jersey as part of a coordinated effort between several different jurisdictions.
