Eight charged with identify-fraud home-equity scheme

Eight people in the Boston area are charged with an identity-theft scheme that prosecutors say let them steal $700,000 from five victim's home-equity lines. Members of the fraud ring managed to get the victims' phone lines redirected to their own, which they then used to obtain advances on the victims' home-equity lines and have them transferred to their own bank accounts between November 2012 and Feburary, 2013, according to the Suffolk County District Attorney's office.
