Woman Charged With Opening Bank Accounts in Another Woman's Name

Suspect used all of victim's personal identification to open accounts and withdraw money at Tosa bank.

A 26-year-old Milwaukee woman is facing charges after she used another woman’s personal information to open up bank accounts and then take money from them at a Wauwatosa bank.

Brenity Alexia Gayton was charged Wednesday in Milwaukee County Circuit Court with one count of unlawful use of personal identification and two counts of forgery. If convicted, she faces up to 18 years in prison and $30,000 in fines.

According to the criminal complaint:

On Oct. 3, the victim discovered someone had opened up a checking and savings account in her name and used all of her personal identification information, but with a different address in Milwaukee. She soon found out someone had also deposited checks into the accounts and withdrew money for a total loss of $2,000.

Gayton allegedly opened the accounts and allegedly made two withdrawals from the accounts using a debit card at a Wauwatosa M&I Bank location and also did a cash transfer of $3,000 between the two accounts.

Just looked up her criminal history. Suffice it to say, lock her up and throw away the key. She may be after your identity next.
