A Florida man with the Bentley car logo tattoed across his forehead has been charged with identity theft. He also has a shark tattooed on his face and works at a shoe store.
Federal prosecutors say Derek Denesevich, 26, of Lauderhill, liked to pretend to be other people by stealing their identities and using them to make money by filing fraudulent income tax returns.
Denesevich appeared in court on Wednesday to face federal identity theft charges. He paid a former Broward Clerk of Courts employee to misuse her position and steal drivers' identities, according to court records.
Denesevich is charged with aggravated identity theft and conspiracy to possess unauthorized access devices.
According to court records, he is co-operating with the investigation of a stolen identity tax refund fraud scheme that prosecutors said he operated.
He is scheduled to return to federal court in Fort Lauderdale on Monday to either plead guilty or not guilty. If convicted, he faces a maximum of seven years in federal prison.
