This time they operated under the name of Arico Designs out of Texas. Of course, this was just a fake company at a mailbox address. They lured in several graphic designers and others looking for freelance work and then had merchandise purchased with fraudulent credit cards mailed to their homes. At the direction of “GEORGE CARTER” [email protected] the duped workers then wrapped the merchandise as gifts, then brown paper and photographed it. The before and after wrapping photos of the items were then emailed to “GEORGE CARTER” for approval. The workers then received Express Mail labels via email to affix to the package. They then mailed it to an address in Ukraine.
