A Mastic Beach former mortgage broker who owned an employment agency has been charged with identity theft after she used client information to run several scams, police said.
She was charged with first-degree identity theft, two counts of third-degree grand larceny and two counts of second-degree criminal possession of a forged instrument, police said.
She was scheduled for arraignment Tuesday in First District Court in Central Islip.
Police said Barth was arrested by detectives from the Identity Theft Unit, which had launched an investigation after a complaint from a victim who reported that "a credit card had been obtained in her name without authorization."
Police said Barth used her access to client information, including identifying information, to create forged checks and run other scams.
The investigation remains ongoing, police said.
