LAS VEGAS (AP) — Authorities in Las Vegas say three men are sought on felony charges alleging they ran an illegal credit repair mill with victims in southern Nevada, the Los Angeles area and New York.

An indictment filed Wednesday in Clark County District Court accuses Rashid Salim, Arthur Bethae  and James Kobernusz of racketeering, forgery and establishing a financial forgery laboratory.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports  that warrants were issued for their arrests.

The three are accused of taking part with seven other people in a scheme to send forged police reports through a company called Trade Line Pros to consumer credit reporting agencies.

Investigators said the documents indicated that customers had been victims of identity theft, and their credit ratings should be restored to a favorable rating.
