Waynesboro Dollar General credit card fraudster linked to larger operation
New charges are being brought against a New York City man arrested in Waynesboro last month, as he's been linked to a larger operation. Police arrested 24-year-old James Joseph of Brooklyn, NY on Sept. 21, after he allegedly used fake credit cards at several area Dollar General stores. "[Large criminal organizations] send these low level guys into rural areas and think the local police aren’t going to dig too deep," he said. Working with a special agent with the United States Secret Service, it was determined that several of the credit cards confiscated on Joseph at his arrest had been fabricated with credit card numbers from financial institutions that are outside Virginia.

The fraudulent credit cards are then used to buy gift cards and prepaid phone cards that are in turn sold "on the street."
