Nearly two dozen people face federal charges in connection with a vast
fraud and identity theft ring that caused more than $200 million in
losses to the financial and credit card industry, NBC 4 New York has
learned.

Teams of FBI and U.S. Secret Service agents as well as U.S. Postal
Inspectors began making arrests early Tuesday in New Jersey and
several other states in connection with the takedown, law enforcement
officials said.

The charges are expected to be outlined later Tuesday by federal
prosecutors in New Jersey and include bank fraud, mail fraud, wire
fraud, mortgage fraud and identity theft.

The defendants arrested in New Jersey are expected to be arraigned in
federal court in Newark later Tuesday.
