Share/Save/Bookmark

CAMDEN, New Jersey — Federal prosecutors in New Jersey say two New York men face credit card fraud conspiracy charges after they were arrested at an Atlantic City casino.

Forty-six-year-old Tracey Coleman of Rosedale and 23-year-old Wanell Wallace of Fresh Meadow allegedly tried to fraudulently charge more than $500,000 using stolen account numbers. They were arrested early Saturday, but the charges against them were not made public until Monday.

Both men could face up to 10 years in prison if convicted.

Prosecutors say Coleman and Wallace used fraudulently obtained credit card account numbers to buy prepaid debit cards in drug stores throughout the New Jersey area. Those prepaid debit cards were used to deposit funds into other accounts, which the men accessed for their personal use.
