ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — Court papers allege that somebody fraudulently obtained more than $1 million in parts from Dell Computers by making hundreds of calls while pretending to place orders for Sandia and Los Alamos national laboratories in New Mexico

The Albuquerque Journal (http://bit.ly/VfQh5P ) reports that the alleged fraud reportedly started in 2007 and continued until 2010.

The case was turned over to the Secret Service that year after a security investigator for Round Rock, Texas-based Dell contacted Albuquerque police.

Two Albuquerque men were indicted last May on 131 state counts each of fraud up to $20,000. Ronald Campus and Allan Friedt have pleaded not guilty.
