Six arrested in fake credit card scam

PALA, Calif. - Authorities have arrested six suspected members of a fraud ring that uses fake credit cards to get cash advances from Indian casinos in San Diego County.

Sheriff's Sgt. Darryl Kimball said investigators believe the suspects, who were arrested at Pala Casino early Saturday, used the cards and stolen credit card numbers to get money from ATM machines and casino cashiers. He said the scam occurred over the past two months in northern San Diego County and included multiple fraudulent transactions.

The suspects were arrested for investigation of burglary, theft and forgery.

Bail for each was set at $1 million.
