Former United States Postal Service Employee Indicted

GREENSBORO, N.C. – United States Attorney for the Middle District of North Carolina Ripley Rand announced today that a former United States Postal Service employee has been indicted by a federal grand jury for allegedly (1) committing Social Security fraud, (2) committing identity theft, and (3) committing the unauthorized use of an access device to obtain something of value.

The indictment alleges that Joyce Huskey Stanley, age 55, of Reidsville, N.C., falsely used Social Security numbers not assigned to her (two counts), unlawfully used the identification of another (two counts), and used an unauthorized access device with intent to defraud another (one count).

Ms. Stanley was released on a $50,000 unsecured bond.

The case is being investigated by the United States Postal Service – OIG, United States Secret Service and the Rockingham County Sheriff’s Office. The case is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Frank Chut.

An Indictment is not evidence of guilt. All defendants are presumed innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.
