Law360 (November 25, 2020, 7:44 PM EST) -- A North Carolina attorney has been charged with bank fraud after she and two others allegedly applied for loans and credit cards using Social Security numbers that were not theirs to pay for her plastic surgery and other expenses, according to federal prosecutors.

The lawyer, Tiffany Dawn Russell, 41, of Durham had her initial appearance before a magistrate judge on Tuesday after a federal grand jury indicted her with unauthorized use of access devices and multiple counts of bank fraud and misuse of Social Security numbers, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Eastern District of North Carolina.
