A South Bend man was sentenced to more than four and a half years in prison for mail fraud.
According to court documents, from at least January 2006 to February 2020, Geneco Glover defrauded more than 50 individual victims after obtaining their personal information and either adding himself as an authorized user on the victims’ credit card accounts, or opening additional accounts in the victims’ names.
Glover, 39, would also change the mailing addresses for the stolen accounts to mailing addresses under his control in order to receive credit cards.
He stole at least $160,000 from his victims.
Glover initially agreed to self-surrender in November 2018, but instead of turning himself in, he spent the next 15 months fleeing from law enforcement. He was captured in February 2020.
Glover pleaded guilty to mail fraud and aggravated identity theft and was sentenced to 57 months in prison, along with two years of supervised release. He was also ordered to pay more than $162,000 in restitution.
