Raleigh, N.C. — Federal authorities said Monday that they have charged a Henderson couple in an identity theft scheme.
Mark Anthony Davis, 41, and Lawanda Joyce Ragland, 33, were each charged with conspiring to commit offenses against the U.S., access device fraud, aggravated identity theft and 11 counts of possessing stolen mail.
Since May 2008, Davis and Ragland have stolen credit card and bank account statements, tax information and other items from people's mail to obtain Social Security numbers, birth dates, bank account numbers and other personal information, authorities said. The pair would then use the data to obtain credit cards in other people's names, authorities said.
