Jury convicts operator of National Vocation Group job-staffing company of wire fraud


A federal jury in Atlanta has convicted Erick Powell, a former operator and co-owner of the National Vocation Group job-staffing company, of wire fraud. A second defendant and co-owner, Ahmad McCormick, pleaded guilty to wire fraud on August 31, 2017.

“Powell and his co-defendant used their company to dupe hundreds of job-seekers into paying high fees for unnecessary training with the expectation of placement in jobs that did not exist,” said U.S. Attorney Byung J. “BJay” Pak. “The jury’s verdict is a strong message to other criminals that law enforcement will find and prosecute any person or company seeking to take advantage of the hard-working citizens of this district.”
