Middleman Pleads Guilty in Michigan Drivers License Fraud Investigation
March 15, 2007
On March 15, Mohamed Abdulla Saleh pleaded guilty to a charge of identification document fraud in U.S. District Court in Detroit, Michigan. Saleh was indicted January 10 on charges related to his role as a middleman in a scheme to assist more than 100 people to obtain personal drivers licenses from the state of Michigan. Saleh allegedly collected $300 from customers and paid Michigan Secretary of State employees to issue drivers licenses without requiring the customer to take the required written knowledge test. No sentencing date has been set. The Secretary of State’s office is in the process of cancelling some of the licenses. This case is part of an ongoing investigation led by the FBI.
