The Manhattan District Attorney’s office has indicted 55 people who are accused of running an identity theft and cyber crime ring.

Prosecutors say in indictments that participants in the scheme had jobs that involved processing donor or customer checks. One worked at the UJA-Federation, a major Jewish charity.

Prosecutors say she and other members of the ring harvested people’s personal information from the checks and provided it to accomplices.

Then the accomplices would forge checks, deposit them in still other associates’ bank accounts and withdraw the money as soon as it cleared.
