An affidavit filed against a Memphis, Tenn., man alleges that he has used neurology records stolen from a clinic in 2011 to con banks out of more than $1.6 million, according to Fox 13.

 

Ann McFall, office manager for Memphis Neurology, the clinic from which the records were stolen, told Fox13 the indicted individual stole 146 patient and employee records, and likely had help from a staff member within the facility. Ms. McFall also said the authorities informed Memphis Neurology an arrest had been made in connection with the 2011 theft and the ensuing bank fraud.

"[The individual] allegedly sent and received applications, checks and other financial information to and from various lenders through mail carriers to other states," according to a statement from the Memphis Department of Justice.

The U.S. Postal Inspection Service and the U.S. Secret Service are currently investigating the case, according to the Memphis Department of Justice.
