An Orange County man is going to prison for a $250,000 fraud scheme. Investigators say it started in March 2021 and lasted for more than a year. They say it also involved multiple banks. Investigators say Anthony Dubuisson from Newburgh and other defendants deposited altered checks belonging to Ironworkers Local 417 and other businesses, then withdrew cash. They also created fake business accounts to help with those deposits, according to investigators. Dubuisson was sentenced to 3 to 10 years.
