Arrests Made in Borgata Credit Card Fraud Scheme

Two individuals have been apprehended following an investigation into a credit card fraud scheme at Atlantic City’s Borgata Hotel and Casino.

The New Jersey pair allegedly attempted to fraudulently charge more than $500,000 using stolen account numbers, were arrested early Saturday, March 29, at the Borgata Casino, in Atlantic City.

John Brennan of the Bergen Record notes that Tracey Coleman, 46, of Rosedale, N.Y., and Wanell Wallace, 23, of Fresh Meadow, N.Y., are each charged with one count of conspiracy to produce, use, and traffic in one or more counterfeit access devices, with intent to defraud, in a manner affecting interstate commerce; and one count of conspiracy to do so during any one-year period and obtaining $1,000 or more.

U.S. Attorney Paul J. Fishman's office complaint against the pair noted:

“Coleman and Wallace fraudulently obtained funds, which were deposited into American Express accounts in their names, by using numerous credit card account numbers issued by Capital One Bank. Coleman and Wallace fraudulently obtained the numbers, which Wallace would then use to purchase prepaid debit cards in CVS Caremark drug stores throughout the New Jersey area. Those prepaid debit cards – or ‘Vanilla Reload’ cards – were used to deposit funds into the American Express accounts.”

Each count carries with it up to a five year prison sentence.
