Man Sentenced to 90 Months for Identity Theft Scheme Spanning Nevada and Other Western States

2 News

Ryan M. Tichy, 43, of Seattle, was sentenced to 90 months in federal prison for his involvement in a wire fraud scheme in Nevada and other western state.

According to court records, from at least May 2018 through November 2020, Tichy executed a scheme to defraud wherein he obtained the means of identification of many individuals and used that information to create false identification documents, open credit accounts, obtain loans, takeover existing credit accounts, and make purchases.

The fraudulently-obtained means of identification included names, social security numbers, dates of birth, and account numbers.  After he gathered that information, Tichy would often create a fake driver’s license using his picture but the victim’s name.
