Maryland Man Sentenced to Prison for Credit Card Offenses

For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, District of Maine

Portland, Maine: A Beltsville, Maryland man was sentenced today in federal court in Portland for his involvement in a conspiracy to use stolen credit card numbers, U.S. Attorney Halsey B. Frank announced.

U.S. District Judge John A. Woodcock, Jr., sentenced Marcellin N’Din, 36, to concurrent sentences of 22 months imprisonment and three years of supervised release on two access-device-fraud charges. He was also ordered to pay a $1,000 fine. The amount of restitution he will be ordered to pay to victims will be determined at a later date. He pleaded guilty on July 10, 2019. 

According to court records, N’Din conspired with others to use counterfeit credit cards at Maine stores. N’Din himself used counterfeit cards to make purchases at several Maine stores in August 2018. A search of a hotel room used by a co-defendant, Bryan Boley, in January of this year led to the seizure of several dozen plastic cards, 47 of which had been fraudulently re-encoded; about 25 receipts showing purchases of gift cards and other items; and a credit card reader/writer.

Last week, Boley was sentenced to 22 months imprisonment and three years of supervised release, and ordered to pay a $1000 fine.

The U.S. Secret Service; the Maine State Police; and the Auburn, Brunswick, Cape Elizabeth and Yarmouth police departments investigated the case.
