Skiatook Man Arrested for Making Fake Credit Cards

Posted: Updated:

A Skiatook man was arrested for reportedly making fake credit cards.

Sand Springs Police and agents with the U.S. Secret Service arrested Christopher Cooley earlier this week. He was booked for possession of a forged instrument and driving under suspension and no insurance.

According to a report from the Sand Springs Leader, officers were made aware of the activity after an employee of the Best Western in Sand Springs told them Cooley was making suspicious copies on their copy machine.

Cooley was located as he was walking to his car. Paperwork with four-digit and 16-digit numbers were found in a folder he was carrying.

"The guy was printing credit card numbers and pasting them on gift cards. He was printing the visa card numbers on the gift cards and laminating them. Then, he would sell the cards to other people," Sand Springs Deputy Chief of Police Mike Carter said. "They buy a card for pennies on the dollar. At the store the card wouldn't scan but the number would work and the person would get full credit for the purchase."

Cooley allegedly told officers the numbers were serial numbers for his cabinet-making business. He then said they were warranty numbers and then part numbers, reports said.

Carter said that it was the first time the police department had dealt with this kind of fraud. And the first the Secret Service was called in to assist.

Cooley's paperwork was confiscated. He was transferred to the jail on $2,000 bond.
