Man sentenced for ID theft and fraud

Three and a half years in prison, for a man who took part in an ID theft case impacting hundreds of New Yorkers.

54 year old Guy Cuomo is from Maryland. He was just sentenced for his role in a scheme to sell personal information he got from the New York State Department of Labor and workforce agencies in other states.

He was found guilty of computer fraud, misuse of a social security number, aggravated identity theft.

The investigation started back in 2017, when someone at the New York State Department of Labor noticed suspicious activity from an out of state IP address.
