Buffalo State students arrested on charges of creating dozens of fake credit cards

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — A group of three Buffalo State students are facing serious charges after police say they uncovered a scheme to steal identities and create forged credit and debit cards.

Police say they investigated the group of three students over a year-long period, learning they created dozens of credit and debit cards to steal goods both online and locally.

On Tuesday, officials arrested and levied the claims against 23-year-old Mohamed Kaba, 24-year-old Nkemjika Ogbuagu and 25-year-old Kelsey Dapaah. Each hails from Yonkers, New York and attends SUNY Buffalo State.

Each faces charges of second-degree criminal possession of a forged instrument and criminal possession of a forgery device. Officials say Kaba also faces charges related to a slashing with a razor blade on the campus in September of 2015.
