Kenyans, KC man admit to stealing old folks' IDs

From The Star:

Men from Kansas City and Kenya pleaded guilty this week to a conspiracy to defraud the Internal Revenue Service and send some of the money to Africa.

Moses Ndubai, Karingithi Gotonga Kamau, both Kenyan citizens, and Michael Anderson of Kansas City, pleaded guilty to conspiracy and wire fraud charges in federal court.

According to prosecutors, they and others stole the identities of elderly nursing home patients and filed fraudulent tax returns. Ndubai, Kamau and Anderson then opened bank accounts into which the refunds were deposited.

Conspirators then transferred funds to accounts in Kenya, according to court records.
