50¢ Fraud Scam

Bank Info Security reports a Long Island NY production company is the pawn in a new fraud scheme that has victimized consumers and their financial institutions.  JHD Productions is the target of a new account scam in which fraudsters have:

  • Opened a fake account in the company’s name, and
  • Sent out bogus bills to scores of unwitting customers, assessing minor fees – 40 cents to $1 – to their credit and debit cards.

As a result, consumers and their institutions are being ripped off, and JHD owner Hugh Daly is forced to take measures to protect his business and reputation.
