Rancho Cordova woman charged with falsifying Social Security records

A Rancho Cordova woman is accused of falsifying Social Security records to mislead federal officials conducting naturalization proceedings for another individual.

A federal grand jury returned an indictment Thursday charging Nelli Kesoyan, 43, with making false entries and reports, according to a U.S. Attorney’s Office news release.

Court documents indicate that Kesoyan was employed by the Social Security Administration as a claims representative. On Oct. 10, 2014, she allegedly made false entries in Social Security Administration records.

The indictment was unsealed Monday, and Kesoyan was arraigned that afternoon. She pleaded not guilty.

A status conference is set for Jan. 26 before U.S. District Judge John A. Mendez.

The case resulted from an investigation by the Social Security Administration Office of the Inspector General, the FBI and the Internal Revenue Service-Criminal Investigation.
