Shakour Smith, Ikeem Starks and Quadir Burley are accused of posting bank and credit union logos on their Instagram, and encouraging customers of those institutions to like the posts.
It’s alleged that the men then reached out to those who liked the posts. The men promised the Instagram users a cut of fraudulent checks deposited and then withdrawn from their accounts.
Prosecutors say the scheme netted $50,000.
