Florida Resident Sentenced for Tax and Unemployment Insurance Claims Fraud Schemes
On March 15, 2016, in Miami, Florida, Elton Lloyd Bandoo, aka “Ebdaiceman,” of North Miami Beach, was sentenced to 84 months in prison, three years of supervised release and ordered to pay restitution of $585,070. When law enforcement served a search warrant at Bandoo’s residence, they found computers and external media devices containing the personal identification information (PII) of approximately 27,000 victims. Papers, including medical facility billing forms from a medical facility and handwritten lists containing the PII of 1,400 individuals were also in the residence. The PII was used to file fraudulent tax returns, many in the names of deceased individuals, seeking $1,073,112 in fraudulent refunds. In addition, Bandoo filed nine fraudulent unemployment insurance claims requesting $11,804 in unauthorized payments. In total, the amount of intended loss resulting from Bandoo’s fraudulent schemes was $14,826,443.
