Schaller man charged with COVID-19 related mail fraud

SIOUX CITY — A Schaller man was charged with one count of mail fraud, unsealed in the U.S. District Court in Sioux City Thursday.

In May, Alvin Lavon Rex, 61, is accused of fraudulently receiving money in his Storm Lake bank account from unemployment claims made in Massachusetts and Arizona. He allegedly made a series of cash withdrawals from his account and mailed the cash to at least one other person in Maryland after receiving at least $19,000.

The unemployment claims, boosted by the CARES Act signed by President Trump on March 27, included the Federal Pandemic Unemployment Compensation Benefits of $600 per week claimed. It is unclear how Rex was approved for unemployment claims in the two other states.

If convicted, Rex faces a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
