Former Stratford man gets 8 years in prison for fraud schemes taking in nearly $1.5 million

A former Stratford man has been sentenced to eight years in federal prison for two schemes that took in almost $1.5 million.



According to prosecutors, Mark Anthony Alexander, 37, and his wife Rachel stole 'blank' money orders from the post office in Old Greenwich and then forged them to the tune of $313,000.



Officials say the couple also raised a million dollars in fraudulent loans while buying high end cars for other people, known as straw buyers.



Rachel is awaiting sentencing.
