Man Pleads Guilty to Stealing $1.5M in Credit from 225 People

Steve Visser writes in The Atlanta Journal-Constitution:

An Atlanta man has pled guilty to trying to become 225 people on paper so he could loot their bank account, buy on their credit and ruin their finances.

And what penalty did 27-year Sarp Yaman get for stealing documented credit lines of more than $1.5 million? Three years, six months in the federal penitentiary.

Bank robbers take note: it's often a whole lot less time if you engage in white-collar crime.
