With bad checks and money laundering adding up to $1.9 million, Nida reportedly stole from the following companies and states:

– JP Morgan/Chase: $828,300

– IRS: $127,011

– Delta Airlines: $24,985

– State of California: $15,778

– State of Connecticut: $45,525

– State of Texas: $39,275

For his actual offense, TMZ reports:


He supposedly created fake companies which then allowed him to access various databases that had information about people whose identity he flat out stole.

He then allegedly opened fake bank accounts in the names of the victims and then somehow got hold of stolen U.S. Treasury checks, stolen retirement checks from Delta Airline employees and checks that were supposed to go to people who had unclaimed tax money

About a week ago, Nida was sentenced to eight years in prison; he originally faced 30 years in prison but reportedly got a lenient sentence because he agreed to snitch to authorities.
