2 admit to making, using dozens of fake credit, debit cards

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — Two people have pleaded guilty to a credit card scheme after a year-long investigation by law enforcement officers.

Kelsey Dapaah, 25, and Nkemjika Ogbuagu, 24, admitted to five counts of criminal possession of a forged instrument and one count of criminal possession of a forgery device.

Prosecutors say they made dozens of fake debit and credit cards using stolen information. They then used the cards for local and online purchases.

A third person, Mohamed Kaba, 23, has been indicted and will go on trial in January.

Dapaah, who is a Buffalo resident, will be sentenced on December 20, and Ogbuagu will be sentenced on December 9. They could each spend up to seven years in jail.
