Gold River Business Owner Sentenced to Two Years For Identity Theft

The owner of an immigration visa processing company in Gold River, Calif. was sentenced yesterday after he was found guilty of aggravated identity theft.
Ilie Zdragat, 30, of Sacramento, was sentenced in Sacramento Federal court yesterday by U.S. District Judge Troy L. Nunley to two years in prison for aggravated identity theft. 
According to court documents, Zdragat was the founder and director of Immigration Visa Services Organization (IVSO) that helped clients with asylum and citizenship applications, deportation proceedings and other matters related to immigration. Between April 4, 2012, and September 28, 2012, Zdragat executed a fraud scheme by submitting fraudulent income tax returns through Turbo Tax to the IRS.
According to the plea agreement, on September 28, 2012, Zdragat and another individual electronically filed a false 2011 income tax return for an individual and two dependents using the names and personal information of three former IVSO clients. The victims did not give Zdragat permission to file a tax return on their behalf. 
The tax return sought a refund of $6,200. In an effort to masked his activity, Zdragat used a physical address in San Francisco unconnected to him. The IRS did not process the fraudulent tax return.
