Riverside County Man Gets Over 8 Years In $6.6M PPP Fraud Case

0

A Corona man was sentenced Monday to 102 months in federal prison for submitting false loan applications that brought him more than $6.6 million in Paycheck Protection Program and Economic Injury Disaster Loan funds.

Muhammad Atta, 39, was also ordered to pay $6,643,540 in restitution. He pleaded guilty in August in Los Angeles to federal counts of wire fraud and laundering of monetary instruments, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

“It’s important that the sentence imposed today sends the message that there are serious consequences for defrauding federal relief programs,” U.S. District Judge Percy Anderson said from the bench in downtown Los Angeles.
