ATLANTA, GA – Attorney General Chris Carr has announced the indictment of Borin Khoun on four counts of Theft by Taking in Gwinnett County Superior Court.
“In this case, our office is alleging that Borin Khoun of Lawrenceville, Georgia, stole over $50,000 from a senior citizen who lived in California by participating in an online romance scam,” Carr said in a statement.
“Our Prosecution Division is committed to stopping criminals who perpetrate identity theft and financial fraud,” People who prey on older, at-risk adults and try to capitalize on their vulnerability or loneliness must be held accountable,” Carr said.
The case was referred to the Office of the Attorney General by the multi-jurisdictional Cyber Fraud Task Force. The Cyber Fraud Task Force is comprised of local, state, and federal law enforcement officials – including dedicated lawyers from the Office of the Attorney General’s Prosecution Division. The Task Force’s main goal is to intercept cyber fraud proceeds from Business Email Compromise (BEC) fraud schemes that are being moved through the Atlanta area.
