 Fraud Friday – Disagreement During Bank Fraud Scheme Results in Murder  

Atlanta resident, Brejon Nabors, will spend the rest of his life behind bars after being convicted for murdering his partner in a bank fraud scheme.

According to the Fulton County District Attorney’s office, Brejon Nabors and Mondavius Milan were partners in a 2018 bank fraud scheme involving fraudulent checks and money orders. On numerous occasions, Nabors and Milan deposited fraudulent checks and money orders and then withdraw the funds before the bank reversed the transaction.

On the morning of April 3, 2018, Nabors, Milan, and two unidentified individuals drove to a bank to withdraw fraudulent funds from the account. Nabors was in the front passenger seat while Milan sat behind the driver. 

During the trip, Nabors accused Milan of stealing money from him. Milan denied the accusation, and the two began to argue. Nabors then brandished a handgun, racked it, and demanded to know where his money was. 

Milan reached over the driver’s shoulder, grabbed the wheel, and jerked the vehicle off the road. When the vehicle came to rest in a nearby field, a physical fight between Milan and Nabors spilled out of the car. Nabors eventually shot Milan in the back and in the abdomen.

Leaving Milan dead in the middle of the road,  Nabors fled to New Bedford, Massachusetts and was put on the Atlanta Police Department’s “most wanted” list. Shortly after, Detective, mark Cooper, issued a warning, “If he has access to fraudulent checks, it could almost be a source of endless money. Expect that he would be armed and dangerous.”

On May 21, 2018, New Bedford police busted into the home where Nabors was staying. Nabors saw the officers coming and attempted to flee by jumping out of a second-story window. However, New Bedford police were able to apprehend Nabors and take him into custody.

Last week, Nabors was found guilty of murder, aggravated assault, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. It is still unclear how much money Nabors and his coconspirators made through the check fraud scheme. Investigation into the fraud scheme is ongoing.
