37-year-old Randolph NJ resident Mark Clevett and his father, 68-year-old Middlesex NJ resident Harold Clevett, pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court in Newark. They had been charged with one count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud.
The men operate Clevett Worldwide Mailers LLC in Roxbury. The company handles large mailings for domestic and international customers by sorting, addressing, and bringing the mail to the post office. According to authorities, the Clevetts instructed their employees to throw away mail that was supposed to be prepared for delivery. It is also believed that the Clevetts hired a shredding company to destroy some of the mail.
The scam to defraud customers continued from 2007 to 2011, with approximately three (3) million pieces of mail failing to be delivered.
The U.S. Postal Inspection Service helped to uncover the scheme.
The Clevetts are scheduled to return to U.S. District Court in Newark for sentencing on December 18.
