Stolen Credit Card Used to Order Supplies to Make Fake Credit Cards

Someone tried to order jewelry, leg-warmers, and items to create fake credit cards -- all with a Wilton resident's stolen credit card number.

On Dec. 28 Wilton Police responded to a report of cyber crime in which a stolen credit card number was used in an attempt to buy items online via Amazon.

According to Capt. Lynch the larceny involved an attempt to purchase $984.99 worth of items including jewelry, leg-warmers, a manual PVC card embossing machine and a magnetic strip card reader/writer encoder.

According to police, the person who accessed the victim's credit card number attempted to add items to the victim's Amazon checkout, but since the card had expired the purchase did not go through.

Capt. Lynch said Wilton Police plan to work with security at Amazon on the case.
