Fraud factory uncovered in southern Florida

Now that the holiday season is upon us and all the major deals are filling up our inboxes, we are more likely than ever to pull out our credit cards to make these purchases. While this is a simple action that many consumers do on a daily basis, one does not think that his or her credit card information could be stolen. Unfortunately, scammers are able to secure a consumer's information, causing hi or her financial hardships. Financial fraud is a serious matter, and those accused of such acts could face harsh consequences if convicted.

According to recent reports, law enforcement in Florida uncovered a fake credit car factory located in Hialeah. This operation was capable of cranking out around 1,000 pieces of fraudulent plastic each day as it was operating as a nationwide scam. Based on federal investigative reports, 12 individuals were arrested and charged in this operation.

The 27-year-old male that was supposedly running the counterfeit factory was charged with conspiracy to commit access device fraud. Two others involved in the apparent crime face the same charges. The remaining defendants face charges such as fraud, use of a scanning device to defraud and possession of credit card making equipment.

Facing fraud charges can be a serious matter. Financial crimes can carry with them harsh penalties such as fines, prison time and other consequences. Therefore, those accused of such a crime should take the time to understand their situation and what legal options are available to them. Initiating a strong legal defense could help the accused clear their name and help them avoid any criminal penalties.
