This case involves a third-party data processor (Godfrey), who helped fraudulent merchants make small, unauthorized withdrawals from the bank accounts of hundreds of thousands of victims. Godfrey did this through his business, Check Site, which worked directly with banks that would not have worked with the fraudulent merchants directly. Godfrey also helped the fraudulent merchants to conceal their activity from the banks through various means.
