Man faces new charges in ChoicePoint ID theft

Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 3:07 pm

A Nigerian man has been indicted for infiltrating consumer-data company ChoicePoint to fraudulently access financial records of consumers in a still-widening case that has spurred calls for tighter regulation of the personal information business.

Oluwatunji Oluwatosin, who had already been sentenced to 16 months in prison in the ChoicePoint case, now faces 22 more charges, Los Angeles prosecutors said Tuesday.

The additional counts came as authorities broadened their investigation of data theft at ChoicePoint and said they expected more people to be charged in the case.
