California Fraudster Sentenced to Four Years in Federal Prison for International Mail and Wire Fraud Conspiracy



U.S. District Judge George J. Hazel yesterday sentenced Saul Eady, age 36, of Los Angeles, California, to four years in federal prison, followed by three years of supervised release, for conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud, in connection with a scheme to fraudulently obtain goods using what appeared to be a military e-mail address, but was actually a registered Yahoo e-mail address. Judge Hazel also entered an order requiring Eady to forfeit and to pay restitution in the full amount of the victim's losses, which is $640,172.80. Eady has been detained since his arrest in October 2018.
