            CONCORD - Jamie Ervin, 49, of Springfield, Massachusetts was sentenced on Wednesday to 27 months in prison for bank fraud and identity theft, United States Attorney Scott W. Murray announced today.

            According to court documents and statements made in court, between approximately September 21, 2017 and January 20, 2018, Ervin entered a number of different bank branches and made a number of withdrawals from at least 14 people’s bank accounts.  For each transaction, Ervin used customers’ bank account numbers and false drivers’ licenses that contained the bank customers’ personal identifying information and Ervin’s photograph.  In total, Ervin withdrew approximately $106,000 and attempted to withdraw an additional $31,200 from other persons’ bank accounts.           

            Ervin previously pleaded guilty on January 19, 2019.         

            “Fraud and identify theft crimes cause serious harm to individuals as well as financial institutions,” said U.S. Attorney Murray.  “In order to deter this criminal conduct, we will work closely with our law enforcement partners to prosecute fraudsters who commit fraud and identity crimes.”

            This matter was investigated by the United States Postal Inspection Service and was prosecuted by Special Assistant U.S. Attorney Matthew T. Hunter.
