Man Made Fake Credit Cards To Buy Merchandise At Best Buy; Do-it-yourself credit card scheme stretched from Chicago to Ghana, Africa  The alleged scheme began to unravel when a confidential source tipped off Homewood Police that the Faheem Muhammad, 27, had been using an embosser machine to make credit cards using victims’ credit card numbers. Muhammad would order merchandise on, then go to the stores to pick up the items at stores in Chicagoland and Indiana. He was taken into custody and handcuffed. Police pulled four of the allegedly self-manufactured credit cards from his pants pocket. A search of Muhammad’s bedroom yielded a silver embosser and 43 credit cards, along with miscellaneous papers containing people’s financial information and $1,660 cash. At the station, Muhammad allegedly told police that a man in Ghana contacted him on Yahoo messenger about a year ago, asking if he wanted to make some money. The African contact told Muhammad that he would place Internet orders to Best Buy. All Muhammad had to do was go into the store with the man’s ID and retrieve the merchandise. “I was told to sell the merchandise on the street and then send half of the money back to him through Western Union to Ghana, Africa,” Muhammad reportedly told police.
