MIAMI (Reuters) - Two Florida prison officers are accused of using children's Social Security ( news - web sites) numbers to get credit cards used to pay for tummy tucks and liposuction, federal officials have said.
The Miami-Dade County employees, Della Savoury-Mayo and Xiomara Lobo, were charged with identify theft, according to the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Florida.
The women each face a maximum prison term of 15 years and a fine of up to $250,000 (163,000 pounds).
In addition to surgery, Savoury-Mayo and Lobo were accused of using the credit cards to pay for cars and home mortgages.
The complaint also alleges the officers did not repay the credit they obtained using the stolen Social Security numbers.
