Omaha Man Sentenced for Social Security Fraud

United States Attorney Deborah R. Gilg announced that Kingsley Onumbu, age 53 of Omaha, Nebraska, was sentenced after pleading guilty to Social Security fraud.  The Honorable Joseph F. Bataillon sentenced Onumbu to time served and a 1 year term of supervised release.  

The Social Security Administration Office of Inspector General investigated this case after it was learned that Onumbu provided two different Social Security Numbers and name variations in applications to be a licensed car salesman.  He used a number that was legitimately assigned to him and also used his son’s number.  No monetary loss occurred as a result of Onumbu’s actions as the Nebraska Motor Vehicle Licensing Board reported the problem immediately upon discovery.
