FUQUAY VARINA, N.C. — A Wake County couple has been implicated in an identity theft investigation and officers say the two used their businesses, including a church, to launder the money.
Search warrants for the couple’s home near Fuquay-Varina and their church in Harnett County detail an international scheme that had been going on since the wife attended a conference in London in 2011.
Fuquay-Varina police said they first learned about the scheme in February when an investigator with a local bank flagged a $32,000 wire transfer after a business in Georgia said the transfer from its account was unauthorized.
According to search warrants, a short time later there was another unauthorized attempt to transfer $62,000 from an account in Maryland.
