LODI, N.J. – A livery driver from Lodi tapped into a victim’s credit card account, changed the information and bought himself an iPhone at a Paramus Apple store before authorities stopped him, Bergen County Prosecutor Gurbir S. Grewal said Tuesday.
Abudalla Alhassan, 23, also tried to redeem reward points off the account to buy nine $100 Best Buy gift cards, the prosecutor said.
Grewal said members of his Financial Crimes Unit identified and tracked down Alhassan, charging him with theft and credit card fraud.
A first appearance in Central Judicial Processing Court in Hackensack was set for Feb. 15. Alhassan remained free without bail until then.
