N.y. Strippers, Club Boss Netted $200k In “fishing” Scam: Prosecutor – Cnn.com

The victims, under the influence of drugs, would then be transported to one of two strip clubs in Manhattan and Queens, where they were “taken to a private room for adult entertainment,” according to the prosecutor’s office. The prosecutor’s office said Barbash and Keo would consult Vitolo and oversee the financial part of the scheme charging $5,000 to over $50,000 on individual or even multiple credit cards, a news release says. The men’s signatures were then forged, or the men were led to believe the charges were significantly less as they signed the bill. One victim had more than $100,000 in fraudulent charges rung up over the course of three nights, the prosecutor’s office said. Some victims woke up in their beds with no knowledge of visiting a club the night before, the release added.
