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. (Source
