wiredmikey writes "More than 300 law enforcement officers have executed dozens of arrest and search warrants in connection with multiple fraudulent document rings operating in Los Angeles and several other cities.
The document fraud rings allegedly supported a variety of criminal activities including credit and bank fraud, tax fraud, identity theft, and pharmaceutical diversion schemes.
One of the main targets of the investigation is a man who allegedly manufactured raw materials that were then used to manufacture false documents on a large scale.
The false documents generated by the rings included United States Permanent Resident cards, Social Security cards, Mexican Consular Identification cards, and driver’s licenses.
Evidence developed during the investigation revealed that the fraudulent documents were utilized by illegal aliens to gain employment, as well as other citizenship and residency related benefits."
