New York Man Indicted in Credit Card Fraud Case


A New York man has been indicted in West Virginia in a credit card fraud case.

U.S. Attorney William Ihlenfeld II says a federal grand jury in Wheeling on Tuesday indicted 23-year-old Charles Manu of The Bronx on one count of possession of an unauthorized access device.

Ihlenfeld says Manu was found earlier this year with multiple credit cards and gift cards that had been unlawfully recoded or reprogrammed with new account information.

The charge carries a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine upon conviction.
