Cheswick, PA man faces charges over alleged scheme to defraud USPS

A Cheswick man who ran a small business out of his home selling cell phone accessories has been charged with mail fraud and theft of government property in a scheme to defraud the U.S. Postal Service.

A 12-count indictment handed up Tuesday named Xiaodong Zhang, 40, who ran a company called A-Jazz from his home that sold items online.

From June 2015 to November 2016, a federal grand jury said, he falsified postage labels on small parcels that he shipped to customers and defrauded the postal service in excess of $50,000.

Mr. Zhang was charged by summons and will be arraigned in federal court Oct. 27. He remains free on a $10,000 bond.
