SOUTHLAKE, Texas — Police say a North Texas AT&T employee opened 640 fraudulent accounts and charged his victims more than $660,000.
Southlake Police Department detective began investigating the case in October 2018 after an elderly victim reported the fraud.
Police say Nykee Evans had worked at the Southlake AT&T store from November 2016 until October 2018.
"During that time, he would allegedly open up lines on customer's accounts, buy the newest and most expensive iPhones, and then have his associates come and pick them up," stated the Southlake Police Department. "All in all, he opened up 640 fraudulent accounts and charged $660,755.55 to victims."
Following an extensive investigation, Evans was tracked to his new job in Irving where he was arrested and charged with theft over $300,000, a first-degree felony, and fraudulent use of identifying information/elderly, a third-degree felony.
Police say more charges are expected in the case as more victims come forward.
Evans is being held at the Tarrant County Jail on bonds totaling $7,500.
