NJ authorities charge Michigan woman in ID scam

NEWARK - (AP) - Federal authorities in New Jersey have charged a Michigan woman for her alleged role in what prosecutors say is one of the nation's largest stolen identity refund fraud schemes.
    
U.S. Attorney Paul Fishman says 35-year-old Rosa Marmol of Grand Rapids was indicted Thursday on charges of conspiracy and theft of government property in the form of $1.2 million in U.S. Treasury checks.
    
Fishman alleges that Marmol and 13 other defendants were seeking more than $65 million in tax refunds, and the scheme resulted in the losses to the United States of more than $12 million.
    
More than 8,000 fraudulent U.S. income tax returns were filed, most of them using personal data belonging to Puerto Rican citizens.
