19 Individuals Including Celebrities And Business Leaders Indicted On PPP Fraud Charges

Many individuals, including celebrities, were amongst the 19 people indicted on PPP fraud charges.

Authorities tracked false loan applications back to Atlanta-based business consultant Mark C. Mason Jr. The defendant was named an “unindicted co-conspirator” for receiving a “success fee” for each approved loan.

Mark’s current charges stem from submitting PPP loans with false information for his businesses. As well as helping the other defendants submit fraudulent applications. In court documents, the defendants would team up with Mark to create falsified versions of the IRS Form 941. According to authorities, Mark wouldn’t submit the applications to the IRS but a non-bank lender instead. Which, as a result, would notify their homepage with a “fraud alert” warning.

Another case claims Mark was getting signed loan applications from IRS employee Melissa Myrick. However, the applications were missing either number for employees or an average monthly payroll. Eventually, Mark would come up with numbers with the defendants and later provide them with the funds.

Despite the fact that the businesses are located in various locations around the country. The defendants will consequently be charged in Georgia since Mark’s businesses are located in Atlanta. The defendants are being charged by the U.S. Attorney’s Office in the Northern District of Georgia.
