Photo: Luis Colon, Jr. Wanted by FBI
Luis Colon Jr., also known as ‘Junito’ is wanted for his alleged participation in a credit card fraud scheme. Between 2009 and 2010, it is alleged that Colon purchased large quantities of pesticides using stolen credit and debit cards.
The pesticides were purchased on the Internet or over the phone from companies located in Georgia, Texas, and elsewhere, and shipped to addresses in New Jersey and Pennsylvania for resale at a store in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, with no link to terrorism. Specifically, Colon would allegedly make contact with people and falsely present himself as a representative from their local utility company.
He would convince the victims to give him their credit/debit card information by offering the victims an opportunity to save money on their utility bill by creating automatic debit accounts. He would then contact pest control companies and use the stolen card information to purchase the pest control products and have them shipped to various locations. Colon was arrested for credit card fraud in New Jersey, but was allowed to make bail.
After he fled the area, a bench warrant was issued for Colon on September 22, 2011, in the District of New Jersey, and he is being charged with credit card fraud; aggravated identity theft; and conspiracy to commit credit card fraud.
