A former West Virginia transportation management firm broker recently pleaded guilty to wire fraud after federal prosecutors say he created 230 fake cash advances and took more than $100,000 to deposit in his personal bank account.

Richard Maurice Haddix, 33, worked for MegaCorp Logistics LLC, which is a transportation management firm based in North Carolina and which has an office in Elkins.  

As a broker, Haddix's job was to match client company shipment orders to available trucking carriers and negotiate terms of the shipment deal, court documents state.

Haddix issued cash advances to truck drivers from the MegaCorp Logistics account by using the software program Via TMS.

Federal prosecutors say between July 23, 2011, and February 19, 2012, Haddix used the software program to create 230 fake cash advances and deposited $102,260 into his personal bank account.

Haddix will make restitution. He is free on bond and faces up to 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
