CLEVELAND -- Feds say Angelique Bankston was arrested Thursday after being charged with five counts of bank fraud, three counts of mail fraud, two counts of aggravated identity theft and sixteen counts of money laundering.
According to court records and the indictment, Bankston, 41, of South Euclid, used identities of several individuals without their authority, defrauded Wells Fargo Bank, Dollar Bank, and Ohio Department of Job and Family Services.
Bankston funded a Wells Fargo Bank account with counterfeit funds totaling $13,027.22 and a Dollar Bank account with illegally obtained funds totaling $27,460.
The indictment also alleges that Bankston defrauded ODJFS by causing the United States Postal Service to hold mail for several individuals without their authority.
Bankston then stole U.S. Bank ReliaCards issued by ODFJS in the amount of $2,800 in the names of those individuals.
