Texas businessman admits to bilking NY lender out of $830K

🕐 1 min read

ROCHESTER, N.Y. (AP) — A Texas businessman has pleaded guilty to bilking a western New York lender out of more than $800,000 in a highway construction scam.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office in Rochester says 44-year-old Bradley Boyd of Rhome, Texas, pleaded guilty Tuesday in federal court to wire fraud.

Prosecutors say Rhome owned and operated a Dallas-area concrete business involved in highway infrastructure projects. He entered into an arrangement with a Rochester-area lender that called for his business to receive cash in exchange for invoices owed to the Texas firm.

Authorities say Boyd prepared about $1.2 million in fraudulent invoices during a five-month period in 2011 and received about $830,000 in cash from the lender.

Boyd faces up to 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine when he’s sentenced Nov. 15.
