Philadelphia Man Indicted for Targeting U.S. Army Servicemembers in Conspiracy to Commit Identity Theft and Cyberstalking

PHILADELPHIA – United States Attorney Jacqueline C. Romero announced that Alpha Omega Mayhue, 39, of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, was charged today by indictment with one count of conspiracy to commit identity theft, seven counts of misuse of a Social Security number, seven counts of aggravated identity theft, twenty-one counts of false statements, and one count of cyberstalking.  

The indictment alleges that from February 2018 to March 2021, Mayhue, who served in the United States Army with his victims, stole and used their personally identifiable information to harass and stalk them over past grievances he had with them in the military. Mayhue and his co-conspirators impersonated the victims and conducted numerous unauthorized transactions with banks, credit unions, the Federal Trade Commission, and other entities. In addition, Mayhue cyberstalked one victim, claiming he was surveilling her and subjecting her to sexual threats. If convicted of these offenses, the defendant faces a maximum possible sentence of 164 years’ imprisonment, three years of supervised release, a $9,250,000 fine, and a $3,700 special assessment.

The case was investigated by the Defense Criminal Investigative Service (“DCIS”) and the Federal Deposit Insurance Company Office of Inspector General (“FDC-OIG”) and is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Josh A. Davison.

An indictment, information, or criminal complaint is an accusation. A defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.
