A man from New York has pleaded guilty to processing counterfeit credit and debit cards, according to the United States Attorney’s Office. 

Scott Garcia, 21, said he possessed more than 15 fraudulent devices. He pleaded to one count of fraud related to access devices. He allegedly produced Western Union netSpend, MasterCard debit cards, and gift cards fraudulently obtained for various retail merchants. 

He was also in possession of stolen credit card numbers.

Garcia faces up to ten years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000. 

His sentence will be dependent on the seriousness of the offense and his prior criminal history, if any.
