A Peabody man has been sentenced to seven years in federal prison for leading an identity fraud ring that cost retailers nearly $400,000. Prosecutors said William Dodge, 46, was also ordered to pay $375,000 in restitution to some of the nation’s largest retail chains. Authorities said Dodge obtained the personal information of 49 employees, including Social Security numbers, from a Florida company where his girlfriend worked. The Salem News reported that he recruited others to pose as the employees, using their personal information to create fake driver’s licenses, which were used to open lines of credit at retailers, including J.C. Penney, Best Buy, The Home Depot, Lowe’s, Kohl’s, Macy’s, and T.J. Maxx.
