Colchester Man Who Defrauded Technology Company Sentenced

For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, District of Connecticut

Vanessa Roberts Avery, United States Attorney for the District of Connecticut, announced that MYRON WARE, 49, of Colchester, was sentenced today by U.S. District Judge Victor A. Bolden in New Haven to three years of probation for defrauding a computer technology company.

According to court documents and statements made in court, between 2017 and 2020, Ware identified companies and organizations that previously had purchased computer parts and components from a Texas-based computer technology company.  On approximately 30 occasions, Ware contacted the victim company and falsely represented himself to be speaking on behalf of a customer he had identified.  Ware typically reported that a previously delivered part or component was not functional and requested a replacement.  After the victim company shipped a replacement item to an address Ware had provided, and which was in the vicinity of the customer he was posing as, he traveled to the address to receive delivery of the package.  Ware sold most of the parts and components he received to others and kept some for his own use.

Ware stole tens of thousands of dollars in products from the victim company through this scheme.  Judge Bolden ordered Ware to pay restitution of $77,068.40.

On March 9, 2023, Ware pleaded guilty to one count of mail fraud.

This investigation was conducted by Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) and the U.S. Secret Service.  The case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Katherine E. Boyles.
