Harrisburg man gets 36 months for bank fraud

A Harrisburg man has been sentenced to 36 months in federal prison for bank fraud.

Humphrey Holmes, 28, also received four years of supervised release under the penalty handed down Thursday by U.S. District Court Judge Sylvia Rambo.

According to U.S. Attorney Peter Smith, Holmes from 2010 through September 2011 used fraudulent Social Security numbers, employment records, and other materials in an effort to obtain loans and cash checks from several central Pennsylvania banks and credit unions.

The banks included the Pennsylvania State Employees Credit Union, Belco Credit Union, American General Financial Services, Susquehanna Valley Credit Union, Hershey Federal Credit Union, New Cumberland Federal Credit Union and the Patriot Federal Credit Union.

Holmes also engaged in a check kiting scheme while attempting to cash a $20,000 check that he fraudulently obtained, Smith said.

He was indicted in October 2011 and pleaded guilty in August 2012.
