New Jersey’s U.S. Attorney said Friday that Evan Boamah of Elizabeth and Thomas Donkor of Parlin, both 30, and Alidu Dramani, 33, of Irvington face fraud and identity theft-related charges. A fourth man, 27-year-old Philip Appenteng of New York, is being sought.

They allegedly filed 14 fraudulent income tax returns for 2011 for claims totaling $87,250.

Prosecutors say Boamah and Dramani allegedly provided stolen personal information on people who reside at the state-run North Jersey Developmental Center in Totowa, where the two men work.

Appenteng and Boamah also allegedly provided stolen information. Donkor allegedly prepared the false returns.

It’s not clear who is representing them.
