DETROIT (WWJ) – A man with ties to Michigan is wanted by the FBI for his alleged participation in a credit card fraud scheme.

Twenty-eight year-old Luis Colon Jr. is accused of purchasing large quantities of pesticides using stolen credit and debit cards between 2009 and 2010.

The scheme involved purchasing pesticides on the Internet or over the phone from companies located in Georgia, Texas, and elsewhere, and shipping them to addresses in New Jersey and Pennsylvania for resale at a store in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Colon would approach homeowners under the guise of working for a utility company and convince people to give him their credit or debit card information to set up automatic billing.

There is not believed to be a connection to terrorism.
