A woman from Norfolk, VA, has been sentenced to a decade in prison after stealing the identity of a person from New Jersey and going on a years-long spending spree.

According to federal authorities, 39-year-old Shaneca Moseley engaged in an identity takeover of someone only identified as "C.J.," a New Jersey resident.

Between 2018 and 2020, Moseley impersonated C.J. by possessing and using a forged driver’s license containing C.J.’s personal identifying information, including name, date of birth, home address, and driver’s license number, and a Social Security card containing C.J.’s Social Security number.

During that time, Moseley, using C.J.'s identity, leased an apartment, applied for a loan and purchased a Mercedes Benz, bought furniture on credit, paid for insurance and other utilities, and even masked her true identity during a traffic stop.

Moseley’s activity left C.J. to deal with the results of various payment defaults and impacts to their credit.

Not the first time

Moseley pleaded guilty in 2009 to running another social security fraud scheme and was previously sentenced to two months in jail, three years of supervised release, and ordered to pay restitution.
