A Buffalo was ordered by U.S. District Court Judge Richard J. Arcara Tuesday to serve a two-year prison term and pay full restitution of $29,100 on her conviction for aggravated identity theft.
Nancy Taylor, 40, of Monroe Street, illegally obtained identity information including Social Security numbers, dates of birth and employer information from prospective tenants to her building at 460 Monroe St.
U.S. Attorney William J. Hochul, Jr. said Taylor used that information to open online bank accounts at two local banks. Taylor used the bank accounts to take out loans, then pocketed the proceeds.
Hochul said more than 100 bank accounts were linked to Taylor’s identity theft crimes.
