SEATTLE — The U.S. attorney's office in Seattle says ten people across the country have been indicted for illegally obtaining confidential information by "pretexting."
That's the practice of pretending to be someone else to obtain confidential information.
Officials say the hub of the pretexting activity was at a private investigation firm owned by Emilio and Brandy Torrello in Belfair. The couple and their office manager are scheduled to make their first court appearance Thursday (at 2:30) in federal court in Tacoma.
A news conference on the case is scheduled Thursday (at 11 a.m.) at the office of U.S. Attorney Jeffrey Sullivan in Seattle.
