ALBANY, GA (WALB) -
Lavrinda Hamilton, 40, of Albany, entered a plea of guilty today, to conspiracy to commit wire fraud in Albany Federal Court.
Between March 2011 and September 2012, Hamilton accessed personal identity and customer account data for over fifty different telephone customers from a computer at her job site at Teleperformance in Albany.
She then sent the account and identity data to unknown conspirators and received payment via pre-paid debit cards.
The unknown conspirators filed insurance claims for lost or stolen phones and received replacement phones at third-party addresses.
Hamilton faces a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison, a maximum fine of $250,000, or both. She will be sentenced in about 60 days following a pre-sentence investigation by the U. S. Probation Office.
