KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) A Kansas City payday lender has been sentenced to 10 years in prison for an illegal $220 million scheme to rip off borrowers.
The Kansas City Star reports that a New York federal judge ordered the sentence Tuesday for 73-year-old Rick Moseley Sr. He was convicted last year of racketeering, aggravated identity theft and other criminal charges.
Federal prosecutors said that Moseleys lending enterprises bilked more than 620,000 customers with illegally high interest rates, or took money from people who had never received a loan.
