Lake Park Residents Indicted In Child Support Fraud Ring

Share with friends

brick fraud imageA pair of Lake Park residents have been indicted by a grand jury on charges that they took over $600,000 from victims, claiming to represent a child support payment agency.

50-year old Mark Simpson and 30-year old Stephanie Simpson, along with a Florida man, were indicted on counts of mail fraud, wire fraud, extortion, money laundering, and obstruction of justice. Prosecutors say the trio ran a business that collected child support payments from non-custodial parents, including those paying support under a court order.

The three would allegedly recruit custodial parents set to receive payments, and fool them into applying for the fake services they offered.
They would then enter into an “agreement” with the victims for services, and charge significant fees.
If convicted, all three face multiple decades in prison as well as fines reaching into the hundreds of thousands of dollars.
