OMAHA–(AP)– A California man has been imprisoned for looting a bank account of three Nebraska residents.
Federal prosecutors say 60-year-old Robert Goldman, of Palm Desert, California, was sentenced Monday to 27 months in prison. He also was ordered to pay restitution of more than $221,000. U.S. District Court records say he’d pleaded guilty to one count of wire fraud.
FBI investigators say Goldman fraudulently obtained the personal bank account information. The investigators say Goldman made about 180 unauthorized wire transfers from the bank account to Goldman’s credit card account between January 2016 and August 2017.
