  • NEWS: Fake Cards Seized in Canada

    The Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) took three people into custody and confiscated hundreds of blank plastic cards from a home in Port Coquitlam, British Colombia. The raid followed investigation in the North Shore area when a local business complained of fraud. Officers began looking into the situation when it became apparent that fake cards were being used to perpetuate the scam.

    Once police were able to identify the suspects associated with the case, they turned their sights on two residential homes. The Mounties say that the first house contained the blank cards, as well as the equipment that was used to turn them into the cloned, phony credit cards. They also seized a large volume of stolen personal information and credit card data belonging to several individuals. Their search also turned up cash, marijuana and drug paraphernalia, an unregistered weapon, and ammunition belonging to it. Officers also recovered a wide range of pricey merchandise, ostensibly purchased with the fake cards or their ill-gotten gains. Among the booty, police say they found high-end electronics and furnishings, fitness equipment, ATVs, several motorcycles and a speedboat.

    The second house turned up more of the same, including a great deal of apparently new furniture.
