Washington – Authorities have charged 18 people in connection with a New Jersey credit card fraud ring. As reported by the Associated Press (AP), the scam is stated to be one of the largest of its kind in the nation, with those charged stating to have spent years creating counterfeit cards and building up their credit scores.
At least a reported $200 million has been purportedly stolen in connection with the international fraud ring.
Paul Fishman, the U.S. attorney in Newark, is quoted by the AP as stating of those arrested, “What they did was very painstaking, very sophisticated and took a lot of time.”
The group involved in the scam reportedly began carrying out the illegal activities in 2007 creating at least 25,000 credit cards and 7,000 identities used to borrow money.
