In September, the United States attorney’s office in Denver charged a former airline employee with conspiracy to defraud and money laundering after she allegedly used $200,000 of her own money to purchase a house in a high-crime area of Denver.
That woman is now facing felony charges of wire fraud and money launderers.
In October, a former Air Force airman pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit wire fraud, money laundering and bank fraud for allegedly accepting more than $1.2 million in payments from an Air Force contractor to obtain a $50,000 flight ticket from the contractor’s flight school.
The Air Force says the former airman was involved in a scam involving more than 50 Air Force members who paid him thousands of dollars to attend a private pilot school.
The FBI and the Justice Department announced the arrest of two people in connection with a separate fraud scheme involving the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).
The FBI says the suspects used forged documents to get a federal grant for a private helicopter that the agency had been contracted to provide for a military contractor.
The two men, who are still being sought, are believed to be part of a group that targeted civilians who applied to work for the FAA.
The FBI said that at least two of the people arrested are believed have worked for the company that owns the helicopter.
The Justice Department said in a news release that the two suspects used false and fraudulent documents to obtain the grant, which was intended to pay for helicopters for military personnel who were assigned to the agency.
The men are also believed to have used other documents to conceal payments to them by the contractor.
The federal government is still investigating the case.
