Bibb Co, GA Deputies arrest 22 in RICO Identity Fraud Ring  Bibb County deputies received a fraud alert in May from Prevatek, one of the vendors for accounts inmates use to pay for phone calls, commissary goods and bonds. “They noticed that different account holders’ credit card information was being used to deposit money on inmates’ accounts,” investigator Jason Batchelor said. “It was all originating from the same (computer) IP address.” After several weeks of investigation, including listening to inmates’ recorded phone conversations and reviewing financial records, deputies have arrested 17 people in connection with a credit card fraud racket involving an estimated $20,000. Arrest warrants have been issued for another five people. Denise Krieger, 41, allegedly stole identities and credit card information from people across the country while working for Internet businesses such as 1-800-FLOWERS, running an unlicensed tax preparation business and reselling overstocked goods, according to the sheriff’s office.
