Credit Card Fraud Has a Price

Posted January 23, 1997 12:00 a.m. EST

— Four Triangle residents will pay the price for their involvement in a 12-state credit card fraud ring.

In October of 1995, Federal agents raided a store in downtown Raleigh called Homeboys of New York. Investigators say the store owner, her son, an employee and a relative were trading merchandise for stolen credit cards.

Their sentences range from 51 months in prison to five years probation.
