Three men are convicted for their roles in a multi-county check fraud scheme with ties to the Capital Region.

A joint investigation conducted by the Attorney General’s Office and State Police uncovered that ringleaders Kevin Singleton-Lee and Jerome Simpson, with the aid of Daniel Green, issued over $175,000 in fraudulent checks and used social media to recruit college students and other financially vulnerable young people to cash the fake checks using their personal accounts, before emptying these accounts of all their assets.

Simpson was convicted of grand larceny in Schenectady County and has been sentenced to up to four years in prison.
