Job Search Site Stole Applicants Identities.
The district attorney’s office says the site, http://www.jobcentral2.net , preyed on unemployed people who were unlikely to file a tax return.
It says the site claimed that its job placement services were “sponsored by the government and intended for people with low income.”
According to court documents, Petr Murmylyuk recruited students from Kazakhstan, who allowed him to use their bank accounts to cash the tax refunds.
The New York Times (http://nyti.ms/J6Y2qR ) reports that the amount collected totaled more than $450,000.
Murmylyuk was charged with money laundering, identity theft and other charges.
Information about his lawyer wasn’t immediately available. Source/Credit: The Republic.com
