ID theft ring recruited mail carriers to steal credit cards: DA

Ten people have been indicted in an ID theft conspiracy that included United States Postal Service mail carriers and netted more than $750,000, Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance announced Wednesday.

The alleged crimes were committed between January 2017 and August 2019, with the accused ringleader, 37-year-old Michael Richards, charged with recruiting multiple mail carriers to steal credit cards from the mail they delivered in Manhattan, Brooklyn and Burke, Virginia.

Richards allegedly paid the mail carriers different amounts depending on how well the cards they stole performed.
