As many as 10-thousand people may be at risk of identity theft - victimized by a man DeKalb Police have charged with fraud.


Investigators say an alert neighbor tipped them off to Clyde Chavo. The man noticed large stacks of mail that did not belong to him.

Police allege Chavo ran a tax return racket out of a home in an upscale Druid Hills neighborhood. 

They say he created false businesses using the identities of real people and filed thousands of fraudulent income tax returns.

"I'm surprised that [Chavo chose] this neighborhood because it's just a good neighborhood, Aaron Linzer told Channel 2 Action News.

Chavo, 39, allegedly netted thousands of dollars from the scheme.  He faces five counts of fraud, and investigators say they expect the charges against him to grow.
