    Former workers at Louis Vuitton at Lenox Mall and Gucci at Phipps Plaza were sentenced Wednesday for helping two men buy merchandise using fraudulent credit cards, the U.S. Attorney's Office said.

    Carlton J. Maxey, 40, the Louis Vuitton sales associate, received two years in prison and was ordered to pay $199,293 in restitution. Lee S. Brockwell, 32, the Gucci employee, was sentenced to four months in a halfway house followed by four months of house arrest and ordered to pay $116,589 in restitution.

    According to prosecutors, James O. Omotosho, 39, and Aghedo P. Iyamu, 43, both of Atlanta, obtained pre-approved credit card applications stolen from the mail. They also got the social security numbers and dates of birth of the intended recipients, prosecutors said.

    Brockwell knew both men and waited on them at Gucci, while Maxey knew Iyamu and helped him buy items at Louis Vuitton, including a $20,000 watch, prosecutors said.

    Through this and other schemes, prosecutors said, Omotosho tried to commit more than $900,000 in bank and credit card fraud, and Iyamu and Maxey more than $300,000.

    Omotosho was sentenced to 10 years in prison and ordered to pay $288,318 in restitution. Iyamu was sentenced to five years, 10 months in prison and ordered to pay $173,549 in restitution.
