Two Brooklyn men busted buying gift cards with fake credit cards hitting
multiple Target stores in Paramus and Hackensack, N.J. James E.
Jenkins, 27, and Basil N. Chambers, 24, were arrested outside a Paramus Target
Tuesday night after using fraudulent credit cards there and at a Hackensack
Target earlier in the evening, said Hackensack police Capt. Thomas Salcedo.
Police believe the accused did the same thing at other Target stores in the area
because of receipts found in their car, Salcedo said. Police still were
examining those receipts, he said Wednesday. He said there is no reason to
believe the suspects are connected to a widely publicized breach involving
credit card numbers stored by Target. Police still were trying to determine
whether the accused used legal credit cards that had been stolen or made
counterfeit credit cards using stolen credit card numbers, Salcedo said.

purchases with suspicious-looking credit cards. She then left the store in a
rented SUV. The same day, a Nordstrom’s loss prevention manager reported the
woman used a Texas ID and alias while checking out. On Oct. 23, an employee of
