Three former employees at JPMorgan Chase & Co (JPM.N) branches in New York pleaded guilty on Monday to using the identities of Puerto Rican customers to file fraudulent tax returns, U.S. authorities said.

The three were charged in January by Manhattan federal prosecutors with orchestrating two separate tax fraud schemes between 2006 and 2007 that cheated the Internal Revenue Service and New York State out of $4.8 million.

Katherine Torres, 52, a former manager at a Chase branch in the New York borough of the Bronx, and Rosalind Smith, 41, who also worked there, were charged in the first scheme, along with another person against whom charges are still pending.

There are plenty of folks on both sides of the aisle that should be in jail for the financial fraud committed against the American people.

If only they’d operated Solyndra, Obama would have given them $535 BILLION instead of a paltry $5 million.

Amen. We will never see our money they stole and gave to their criminal enterprises. Amen, FRiend, it was tens of trillions stolen. A few million, and one should be impressed something was done for the people? What lunacy do they want me to believe when the real criminals walk with the trillions.
