‘Ghost’ Fraudster Gets Nearly 5 Years Prison Sentence: Blames Gambling Problem

Canadian Ralph Sanon has been sentenced to 4-and-a-half years for stealing identities and raking in over $777,000 between the years 2011 and 2013.

Dubbed “the Ghost” by investigators, he would steal the victims identities then use bogus ID’s to get unsuspecting banks to provide him with fresh debit cards and PIN numbers, allowing Sanon to essentially drain the accounts of victims.

Sanon got his nickname for his elusiveness. 

At the pre-sentencing, he claimed to have fallen into the wrong crowd and developed a gambling addiction.

The judge was hardly sympathetic to his plight.

"Mr. Sanon lost his moral compass and knowingly turned to criminality to solve his own problems," Judge Jacqueline Loignon said
Sanon is barred from being in a position of trust over money, property or securities for five years.
