Federal prosecutors say 31-year-old Trovoy Dixon, of Bridgeport, has pleaded guilty to money laundering for his role in a scheme to defraud the Social Security Administration.
According to court documents, unidentified fraudsters used stolen identities to contact the SSA, and change the banking information of recipients.
Then, they contacted Dixon asking whether he “wished to make money through moving money." Prosecutors say he agreed.
They also say Dixon opened bank accounts that he controlled and deposited more than $300,000, keeping more than half of it for his personal use.
He has agreed to make restitution of $161,000, and could face up to 20 years in prison.
