Buffalo State students accused in credit card fraud

A SUNY Buffalo State student from Yonkers accused of forging dozens of credit and debit cards has been indicted on half a dozen charges and arraigned before State Supreme Court Justice M. William Boller, Acting Erie County District Attorney Michael J. Flaherty Jr. reports.

Kelsey Dapaah, 25, has been charged with five counts of second-degree criminal possession of a forged instrument and one count of criminal possession of a forgery device. He will return April 22 for a pre-trial conference before Justice Boller.

Dapaah and two other Buffalo State students, Mohamed Kaba and Nkemjika Ogbuaga, both 23 and from Yonkers, are accused of manufacturing forged credit and debit cards with stolen personal ID information and using them for purchases locally and online.

Kaba also has been indicted on a second-degree assault charge stemming from an incident at Buffalo State last September in which another student was slashed numerous times with a box cutter.
