Evansville brother and sister charged in bankruptcy fraud scheme

EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) -

An Evansville brother and sister are charged in a bankruptcy fraud scheme.

56-year-old Patricia Bippus-Allen and her brother, 66-year-old David Bippus, are accused of falsely filing a joint Chapter 13 bankruptcy petition in both Patricia's and her husband's name in September 2010.

Court records show this was done without her husband's consent.

During the scheme, investigators say Bippus-Allen attended meetings with creditors - her brother by her side - posing as her husband.

Both siblings are facing numerous charges, including wire fraud.
