Man pleads guilty in $500,000 International car and identity theft ring
A man pleaded guilty in San Diego Wednesday to being part of a West African-based international car theft and identity theft ring. Edmund Seshie, 42, of Columbus, Ohio, admitted guilt in a hearing before U.S. Magistrate Judge Jan Adler. Co-defendant Abdul Rezak Shaib, 28, of Bronx, N.Y., pleaded guilty Tuesday to conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud. The defendants admitted purchasing stolen credit cards and corresponding counterfeit driver's licenses in bulk from a Singapore-based "carder" website. The stolen identities were then used to fraudulently purchase nearly $500,000 worth of vehicles from U.S.-based car dealerships. So-called "carders" buy, sell and trade online the credit card data stolen from phishing sites or from large data breaches at retail stores. According to court documents, co-defendant Henry Addo ran the international car theft ring from his home in Ghana. From various locations in that country, Addo allegedly placed international phone calls to car dealerships in the United States. During those calls, Addo allegedly assumed the identity of the stolen credit card holders during the negotiation of each purchase. Addo then allegedly used a series of email accounts to transmit the counterfeit driver's licenses and stolen credit card information to United States-based car dealerships. (Source
