Man Sentenced In $400,000 Bank Fraud Scheme

GREENBELT, Md. (AP) — A Glenn Dale man has been sentenced to 12 years in prison for his role in a bank fraud conspiracy that led to $400,000 in losses.

Thirty-nine-year-old Nathan A. Silla was also ordered to forfeit cash, flat panel TVs, an SUV and a Cartier watch at sentencing Monday.

Two days into his trial, Silla pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit bank fraud and other offenses. According to prosecutors, Silla and others used stolen identifying information to open accounts at financial institutions in Maryland and Washington. The conspirators created counterfeit checks, which they deposited into accounts they controlled.
