Elroy man charged with fraud and ID theft
An Elroy man has been indicted by a federal grand jury for identity theft and wire fraud. 45-year old Timothy Mueller has been charged with eight counts of wire fraud and two counts of identity theft. According to the indictment, Mueller was the owner of businesses involved in the sale of residential windows and doors, known as Advance Home Tech/Custom Creations and later known as Windesign. The indictment alleges Mueller directed his sales representatives to have all customers fill out applications for financing. Mueller had a merchant relationship with GE Money Bank, which would provide qualified customers with GE Money Bank credit cards. Mueller would then allegedly enter false sales on those customer credit cards and the bank would then wire transfer the money associated with the fraudulent sales to an account designated by Mueller. The two counts of identity theft allege he used the identity of another person during the wire transfers.
