KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- A suburban Kansas City man has admitted taking part in a $725,000 fraud scheme that involved hacking into business computer systems and stealing customers' identity information.

The U.S. Attorney's office says 45-year-old Vince Evola, of Gladstone, pleaded guilty Thursday to count of conspiracy to commit mail fraud. He admitted taking part in the scheme with his ex-wife, a sister and a Jordanian citizen, all residents of Gladstone, and a second sister from Overland Park, Kan.

Prosecutors say the five used stolen credit and debit card numbers to make online purchases over three years, starting in 2006. Vince Evola admitted a loss of $30,000 to $70,000 can be attributed to him.

Evola faces a maximum sentence of 20 years. His four co-defendants pleaded guilty earlier and were sentenced.
