JONESBOROUGH, Tenn. - A Jonesborough man will spend the next five years in prison for wire fraud conspiracy and aggravated identity theft.
The U.S. Attorney's office says 34-year-old Hector Galvan, his wife, and sister-in-law conspired to negotiate counterfeit checks at retailers in Tennessee and eight other states, resulting in losses in excess of one million dollars.
They say the trio stole identities of people who had indicated on social media that they "liked' certain retailers.
They then used those identities and used counterfeit checks to purchase merchandise.
