Three Asian-American men have pled guilty to federal charges of using counterfeit credit cards to fraudulently obtain funds from at least four Louisiana casinos — to the tune of more than $100-thousand!  

The three were arrested back in november at the Coushatta Casino Resort in Kinder for using counterfiet cards to get cash advances.  Federal prosecutors say the counterfeit cards had the defendants’ names on them but the card numbers could not be matched to any of the three men’s accounts with any of the financial institutions alleged to have issued the cards.  Further investigation revealed that the men had also used counterfeit cards to obtain money at the L’Auberge Casino in Lake Charles, the El Dorado Casino in Shreveport, and the Horseshoe Casino in Bossier City.  They face up to 10 years in federal prison for conspiracy to use unauthorized access devices and a $250-thousand fine.  Their sentencing date has not been set.
