ORLANDO, Fla. -- (WKMG) -- Over the last two decades, Michael Anthony Nelson has morphed himself into a wide variety of people and professions.

Using aliases such as Larry Powell and Anthony Zamora, Nelson has convinced people that he was a banker, a lawyer, and a business consultant, court records show.

In each of those cases, federal prosecutors said Nelson was operating elaborate scams that defrauded people, businesses, and churches out of more than $1.5 million.

Nelson has spent more than 15 of the last 17 years in federal prison for bank fraud, mail fraud, computer fraud, money laundering and identity theft.
