United States v. KBM Group, LLC

1:21-CR-00198 (PAB) (D. Colo.)

KBM Group, LLC (“KBM”) is charged by information with conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud.  The information alleges that from approximately January 2012 through December 2018, employees in KBM’s Merchant Services unit sold data associated with millions of American consumers to clients engaged in fraudulent mass-mailing schemes.  KBM accepted a Deferred Prosecution Agreement (“DPA”) requiring that it pay $33.5 million to a victim compensation fund and an $8.5 million criminal fine. On June 29, 2021, Chief Judge Philip A. Brimmer granted the parties' Joint Motion for Deferral of Prosecution. The Court’s order defers all proceedings in this case for 30 months while KBM completes its obligations under the DPA. The DPA requires the appointment of a Claim Administrator to manage distributions from the victim compensation fund. More information will be posted on this website once the Claim Administrator is appointed.
