PITTSBURGH—A resident of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania pleaded guilty to bank fraud, United States Attorney David J. Hickton announced today.

Brandon Lee Price, 29, of East Liberty, pleaded guilty to four counts before United States District Judge Terrence McVerry.

According to information presented to the court, Price defrauded Citibank N.A. by causing the bank to send account information of Citibank customer P.A. to Price, who then tried to use the customer’s funds.

Judge McVerry scheduled sentencing for September 30, 2013, at 1:30 p.m. The law provides for a maximum total sentence of up to 30 years in prison, a fine of up to $1,000,000, or both. Under the Federal Sentencing Guidelines, the actual sentence imposed would be based upon the seriousness of the offenses and the prior criminal history, if any, of the defendant.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation conducted the investigation leading to the indictment in this case.
