Another identity thief suspect arrested

Jaime L. Brockway of reports on a new arrest of a suspected identity thief:

"A Louisiana preacher faces numerous charges after being accused of falsely obtaining a state insurance license and receiving commission on a policy for a person that never existed.

John Stephen Vaughn, 35, was arrested on May 29 in Abita Springs, La., after Louisiana State Police investigated a complaint from Allianz Life and the state’s department of insurance, police said.

Vaughn is accused of acquiring a fake Wyoming driver’s license and the Social Security number of a 2-year-old child living in Bogalusa, La. He used them to obtain an insurance producer’s license and defrauded Allianz Life by selling a $212,000 annuity to a person who did not exist, according to police. By the time Allianz Life realized the account was fraudulent, Vaughn had withdrawn $20,000 from a bank account under the same false identity, which cost the bank $500 in overdraft charges."
