A former bank teller has pleaded guilty to her role in a tax fraud scheme in which 7,000 fraudulent federal income tax returns were filed.

24-year-old Aisha Mayo of Greenbelt, Md. entered the plea Friday in U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia. Prosecutors say under sentencing guidelines, Mayo faces 24 to 30 months in prison. A sentencing date has not been set.

According to government evidence, Mayo was among dozens of participants in a scheme to steal identities and file fraudulent tax returns.

Prosecutors say Mayo received income tax refund checks from others in the conspiracy and deposited them into accounts at the bank where she worked.
