A criminal complaint was filed in the Middle District of North Carolina, Federal Court for a 31-year-old Trinity man. He’s alleged to have lied to get more than $400,000 in COVID-19 relief according to our federal attorney.
The man is alleged to have created a company in January of this year and then file for two economic disaster loans and a paycheck protection program loan between April and June. Our Greensboro attorney has been told that he then created a fake IRS filing for the company and said he paid 20 employees but the IRS doesn’t have any record of such a filing.
The man received $414,000, and then federal authorities allege he attempted to transfer the money to his personal bank account. A Greensboro criminal lawyer was told the feds were able to freeze his account.
