Florida Man April 5, 2017 – Interstate Credit Card Fraud
CUMBERLAND COUNTY, Pa: A Florida man was nabbed in a Cumberland County Walmart for using fraudulent credit cards to buy gift cards.

Villavicencio went to Walmart, located 3400 block of Hartzdale Drive in Camp Hill, to purchase and reload some gift cards.
Sounds innocent enough, but unfortunately, he paid for the gift cards with stolen credit cards.
Employees detected the card was an active fraud while swiping it during the transaction. The cashier then notified the Walmart Asset Protection team to report the scam.
When the transaction failed, Villavicencio immediately left the building. However, authorities were able to follow and arrest him in the parking lot of Walmart.
According to the police reports, Villavicencio committed the thefts in Hampden and Upper Allen Townships and other similar fraudulent activities in many other counties.
In this incident, police charged him with forgery, theft by deception, and access device fraud. The judge held him in Cumberland County Prison with a $50,000 bond.
