Alum Chad Edgar Goes after Cyberthieves

Posted by David Logan on 09/16/2013 at 04:32 PM

I am pleased to announce that one of our terrific alums, Chad Edgar (’04), has won the 2013 Attorney General’s Award for Fraud Prevention for the work he has done prosecuting tax refund fraud and identity theft at the Department of Justice, Tax Division. The award recognizes exceptional dedication and effort to prevent, investigate, and prosecute fraud, white collar crimes, and official corruption. Chad has focused on Stolen Identity Refund Fraud cases (this website has a brief description of this big, but largely below the radar problem http://www.justice.gov/tax/Stolen_Identity_Refund_Fraud.htm.)

We loved having Chad as a student at RWU, and are proud of his career trajectory, which before this award included service in Army JAG in Baghdad as a military prosecutor in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom, for which he was award the Bronze Star Medal, and a clerkship with one of the top judges in the region, Will Smith of the United States District Court for RI.

Congratulations, Chad!
