Ladies’ Man Pleads Guilty to Bank Fraud
A man accused of charming women to defraud a bank of $63,500 has pleaded guilty to five federal charges of bank fraud. Chester Doc Moore, 30, lived in hotels on the proceeds of the worthless checks that he deposited into the accounts of girlfriends, said Assistant U.S. Atty. Greg Schetina.
“He would befriend women and date them and get their confidence and started depositing in their accounts checks from a company that had closed,” Schetina said of Moore, who was arrested Aug. 29 in Los Angeles and faces a possible maximum prison term of 25 years and a $1.25-million fine.
