Ex-VA worker charged with stealing identities from hospital
MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- A former lab worker at the Veterans Hospital in Madison is accused of using information stolen from VA records to obtain credit cards.
Twenty-three-year-old Elizabeth Feng of Madison also is accused of stealing mail from her neighbors and using the information to access other people's checking accounts.
Feng was charged Thursday with identity theft, misdemeanor theft and unauthorized opening of mail.
The scheme began to unravel May 30 when Feng's boyfriend tried to make a legitimate payment on some parking tickets at the Madison Police Department. According to the complaint, the boyfriend was told he had to pay in cash because fraudulent payments had been made for tickets on his car in the past.
The Wisconsin State Journal reports police have issued a warrant for Feng.
