Undercover FBI agents posing as credit union loan officers arrest Georgia man

FBI special agents working undercover as credit union loan officers arrested a Georgia man Monday who allegedly used a fake ID to apply for a car loan at the $377 million Kinetic Federal Credit Union in Columbus, Ga.

Retired FBI special agent Randall Allen, who works as a security officer for KCU, reported to the FBI that two people each used two different counterfeit driver’s licenses to represent their identities to open accounts.

Allen became suspicious when he noticed discrepancies on the driver’s licenses of both male suspects.

The first suspect applied for a car loan, which was denied by KCU.

The second suspect, later identified as James Theron Brown, applied for a $31,925 car loan. In addition to the fake license, Brown also allegedly submitted a bogus Georgia utility power bill and other fake documents.
