Anthony Michael Moya, 34, and Eunice Brenda Moya, 37, husband and wife, both residents of Santa Fe, New Mexico, were indicted on charges they misappropriated nearly $270,000 from CitiFinancial, Inc., where Anthony had been branch manager. According to the indictment, over a period from June 2004 to October 2005, the Moyas recruited "nominee" or straw borrowers who signed loan documents the proceeds of which they then misappropriated. They each face up to 30 years in prison, plus a fine of $1 million and restitution.
