Federal authorities have charged 53 people with identity theft and fraud following an investigation into a massive criminal enterprise based in Bergen County. U.S. Attorney Paul Fishman and FBI Special Agent in Charge Michael Ward announced the arrest of 47 people, most of them charged with crimes connected to a sophisticated identity theft ring run by Palisades Park resident Sang-Hyun Park. Most of those arrested by agents from the FBI, IRS and Immigration and Customs Enforcement early this morning were from the Korean community in northern New Jersey. Authorities say Park's enterprise bought and sold the social security numbers of Chinese nationals who legally worked in U.S. territories in the Pacific, like American Samoa, Guam and Saipan, to customers who obtained drivers licenses, credit cards and loans with the identities.
