DOJ: Norfolk woman used New Jersey resident’s identity in getting apartment lease, buying Mercedes Benz, furniture, and more


NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) — A Norfolk woman has been convicted of several identity theft charges after being caught impersonating a New Jersey resident.

On Friday, a federal jury convicted 38-year-old Shaneca Moseley on charges of misuse of a Social Security number, loan fraud, and identity theft.

Court records say Moseley engaged in an “identity takeover” of CJ, a New Jersey resident between 2018 and 2020.

According to the Department of Justice, Moseley impersonated CJ by using a forged driver’s license with CJ’s personal identifying information, including name, date of birth, home address, and driver’s license number, and a Social Security card containing CJ’s Social Security number.

During these two years, Moseley used CJ’s personal information to acquire an apartment lease, purchase and obtain a loan for a Mercedes Benz, buy furniture on credit, obtain an email account, insurance, and other utilities.

Officials say Mosely also masked her true identity during a traffic stop using CJ’s personal information.

The real CJ ​​was then left to deal with the results of various payment defaults and impacts on their credit.

On Monday, Moseley was convicted of three counts of false representation of a Social Security number, one count of false statement on a loan application, and three counts of aggravated identity theft.

She faces a maximum of 30 years along with a mandatory consecutive sentence of 2 years in prison when sentenced on July 15.

In 2009, Moseley also plead guilty to running a separate social security fraud scheme and was sentenced to 2 months imprisonment, 3 years of supervised release, and ordered to pay restitution.
