Massachusetts Man Pleads Guilty to Defrauding AGC Members
On Nov. 6, Darren Stokes pled guilty to federal charges that he defrauded the members of at least six trade associations, including AGC, over a four-year period from 2008 to 2012. They stemmed from his practice of faxing fraudulent invoices to the associations’ members. The Boston Globe recently ran an article on the guilty plea and federal prosecutors are now trying to identify victims. Did you receive one of these fraudulent invoices, and mail a check to a Massachusetts address? If you mailed a check (even if it wasn’t cashed), please contact Jessica Pooler at the U.S. Department of Justice by December 1, 2014.
