credit card fraud syndicate operating in North Carolina - shipping product
worldwide - identified with computer parts from Office Depot What
started as a credit card fraud
investigation in North Carolina has led to the seizure of $250,000 to $300,000
worth of computer equipment at a home in Fort Mitchell, Ala., Russell County
Sheriff Heath Taylor said. Boxes containing Passport computer hard drives,
overhead projectors and even a few Toyota car parts were displayed on a table
during a 4:30 p.m. news conference. We found out that some of these items that
came to the address in Fort Mitchell have already been sent on to some out of
the country addresses,” Taylor said. “These things here were probably headed for
the same location or destination. We are certainly trying to work with the
federal government in making some other arrests,” Taylor said. “Those arrests
are going to be linked to international syndicates that may or may not even be
on U.S. soil.” Taylor said there is a national syndicate working to obtain
credit card information to fraudulent obtain computer equipment. The victims of
the fraudulent purchase orders were ASI, a computer company in New York, and
Office Depot, a national office products company.
