Vorce arrested in Chicago on bank fraud

MILWAUKEE, Mich. (WOOD) -- Two West Michigan men now charged with bank fraud after attempting to purchase a half-million dollar yacht using a Wisconsin man's identity.

Michael Vorce, 31, of Grand Rapids, and James Jett, 29, of Byron Center, were arrested Tuesday in Chicago. According to federal court documents, the two men attempted to steal a Milwaukee lawyer's financial information to purchase a 48 foot Seay Ray yacht, listed at $549,000.

Vorce is accused of attempting to buy a 48-foot Sea Ray yacht using financial information of Michael Berzowski, a partner in a Milwaukee law firm. Documents show the online loan application competed on June 30 through Bank of the West's Essex Credit was for $391,450. On that application, Vorce listed his employer as "Weise, Berdwich, Brady LLP," the law firm Berzowki works for.

After filling out the online loan application, Vorce mailed what he claimed to be Berzowki's 2006 and 2007 tax returns to Bank of the West.

Fraud investigators at the bank contacted the accountant listed on those tax returns, who then informed the bank he did not prepare the returns.

An FBI investigation was launched, that led them to Chicago on Tuesday. There they arrested Vorce and Jett picking up at Bank of the West package addressed to Berzowski.
