He allegedly applies for the credit card using a victim’s information and then steals the card out of his or her mailbox when the card arrives.
According to investigators, the 53-year-old had a square card reader attached to his cell phone under the business name “Sleek Auto Sales” and would run the fraudulent credit cards in his southwest Houston apartment. The money was then deposited into his bank account.
The two other suspects, said to be his accomplices, run a cartel which operates within the US and have allegedly stolen more than $650,000.
Olayinka reportedly conspired with the two local business owners, Ezenwa, who owns Lace Warehouse and African Fashions on Bissonnet and Tifase who owns Lagos Island Café on Highway 6 South, a west African food restaurant.
The cartel is accused of also running the credit cards for payments at their businesses.
