Man sentenced for using fake credit cards

PRESS RELEASE

LAKE CHARLES, La. — A Houston, Texas, man was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Patricia Minaldi to 41 months in prison, three years of supervised release and 40 hours of community service for using counterfeit credit cards and other devices to steal thousands of dollars.

Deamioune Fransyre Caples, 41, was also ordered to pay restitution of $70,700 taken in the scheme.

He pleaded guilty on Aug. 1. According to evidence presented at the guilty plea, between June 21, 2012, and Jan. 13, 2013, Caples used counterfeit credit cards and other access devices at Delta Downs, L’Au berge Du Lac and Isle of Capri casinos to access money.

The devices included Green Dot Visa cards, 123 Rewards cards, Chase cards, Wells Fargo cards and Bank of America cards, among others.

The cards displayed Caples’ name on the front, but the magnetic strip on the back contained the identity of the financial institution and individual who had not authorized Caples to use their account information.

The defendant made the counterfeit devices in Texas and traveled to the Western District of Louisiana to use them.

The U.S. Secret Service investigated the case. Assistant U.S. Attorney Howard C. Parker prosecuted the case.
