Imran Awan, former IT aide to Congresswoman, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, was arrested last month while trying to flee the country. Now, he has been indicted by a grand jury on four counts relating to bank fraud. He is charged with providing false information to obtain home-equity lines of credit from the Congressional Credit Union.  Awan and his family, who also were employed by Democrat legislators, received almost $5 million since 2003.  Congressional aides say that the Awans were blackmailing representatives based on emails and other files extracted from their computers.

The grand jury decision in U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia comes roughly a month after Awan was arrested at Dulles airport in Virginia trying to board a plane to Pakistan, where his family is from.

 

The indictment also includes his wife Hina Alvi.

 

The indictment itself, which merely represents formal charges and is not a finding of guilt, addresses separate allegations that Awan and his wife engaged in a conspiracy to obtain home equity lines of credit from the Congressional Federal Credit Union by giving false information about two properties – and then sending the proceeds to individuals in Pakistan.

So why is the real estate angle important?  As we noted previously, title companies, unlike individuals, can wire large sums of money to international bank accounts without arousing the suspicions of federal investigators.
