Jersey City jeweler gets 2 years in prison for $200M credit card scam
JERSEY CITY — A jewelry store owner who helped create thousands of fake identities as part of a $200 million credit card scheme has been sentenced to two years in prison.
Vinod Dadlani was sentenced on Wednesday after pleading guilty to conspiracy to commit bank fraud in June 2014. He is one of 19 people to admit their roles in the scheme.
Prosecutors say Dadlani let conspirators involved in the plot to swipe cards that didn't belong to them at his Jersey City store. He then split the proceeds of the transaction.
Dadlani was also sentenced to two years of supervised release and ordered to forfeit more than $400,000.
