Maplewood man indicted on new counts for alleged phony debt elimination scheme

NEWARK, NJ — Daniel K. Dxrams, 39, of Maplewood, was indicted June 29 on one count of conspiracy to commit mail fraud and nine substance counts of mail fraud in connection with an alleged debt elimination scheme to unlawfully discharge his obligations for a Rolls Royce, a Bentley and two Mercedes Benz vehicles, according to June press release from the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

He was originally charged by complaint with one count of conspiracy to commit mail fraud when he was arrested with four other individuals who allegedly used phony money orders, cashier’s checks, receipts and other fabricated documents to fraudulently discharge mortgages, student loans and other financial obligations.

Dxrams was one of five individuals arrested March 20 and charged with using phony money orders, cashier’s checks, receipts and other fabricated documents to fraudulently discharge mortgages, student loans and other financial obligations, U.S. Attorney Craig Carpenito announced in March. In March, Dxrams was charged with one count of conspiracy to commit mail fraud.

According to the complaint, Dxrams and others used fraudulent money orders, cashier’s checks and other fictitious documents to fraudulently discharge their debts or other obligations.

Dxrams allegedly conspired to fraudulently obtain luxury cars. For instance, another defendant reportedly sent a bogus $101,000 cashier’s check to a finance company that enabled Dxrams to obtain a 2012 Bentley. Dxrams then allegedly sold the car to a third party for approximately $85,000 and then issued a bank check to a third defendant for approximately $25,000. The defendants also used this scheme in an effort to fraudulently obtain two Mercedes-Benz cars.

All defendants are deemed innocent until proved guilty in a court of law.
