Staying Relevant As A Fraudster

Senior Director of Strategic Alliances
LexisNexis Risk Solutions - Government

Bank statements, Social Security checks, W-2 forms. These documents are frequently the target of identity theft because they are all that is needed to commit fraud. Gaining government benefits, acquiring property, illegal entry into the United States. The list goes on. Whatever the fraud vices, those documents will make it happen. But to succeed as a personal identifying information fraudster, it’s important to stay relevant. Which would now mean being able to include in the wide array of PII offerings, the fraudulent COVID-19 vaccine card. And Chaiya Maley-Jackson was nothing if at least relevant. Maley-Jackson was the owner and operator of Diva Documents. The queen of fake documents for all the peasants in her kingdom of fraud.

Maley-Jackson used her personal Facebook page under the name Yaya Flowers to advertise the types of documents she could produce and a pricelist for the fake documents. The documents that Maley-Jackson could produce and transfer included paystubs, lease agreements, bank statements, W2 forms, Social Security Cards, and driver’s licenses, and COVID-19 hardship letters. The prices for the fake documents ranged from $15 to edit a paystub to $150 for a hard copy of a driver’s license. A wide range of price points for all types of fraudsters.

The big deal here is that those fake documents are going to be used for nefarious goals. PPP loan applications, car loan applications, and apartment rentals, just to name a few. Which Maley-Jackson knew. In court, Maley-Jackson admitted that between January 2020 and August 2022, she created at least 400 Social Security Cards, eight driver’s licenses, and six COVID vaccine cards. She earned more than $320,000 in fees from producing, selling, and transferring these false documents. On Oct. 18, Maley-Jackson pleaded guilty in U.S. district court.

Excellent job by the F.B.I. with this case.

Today Fraud of The Day is based on article “Woman made $320K selling fake Social Security and COVID documents on Facebook, feds say” published by the Charlotte Observer on April 21, 2024

A North Carolina woman ran a business selling hundreds of fake documents — including Social Security cards, COVID-19 vaccine cards and driver’s licenses — over Facebook, federal prosecutors said.
Chaiya Maley-Jackson, 23, of Charlotte, advertised the documents she’d create herself through her business, Diva Documents, on the social media platform and on two business websites, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Western District of North Carolina.
