Am unemployed Bristol man, 22, has been charged by police with mail and credit card fraud involving $25,000 in transactions.
Zachary B. Bisbano, of 1109 Hope St., gave himself up to Bristol police last Friday, Dec. 13, at 8:30 am after an investigation by Bristol Det. Marc Remington with the assistance of United States Postal Inspector Cheryl Swyers.
The investigation determined that Bisbano “had intentionally diverted the mail” from a Bristol woman’s home “after gaining access to her personal information, and opened or attempted to open several credit cards and apply for auto loans,” according to the arrest report.
Bisbano was able to successfully open Citicard, American Express, and Capital One credit card accounts, where he made several purchases over one month, according to the arrest report.
“It was determined through documentation received from the credit card companies, surveillance photos, loan applications, and identification provided that Bisbano was accountable for the use of information and credit cards that were received via the U.S. mail,” according to the arrest report.
Bristol police got a search warrant for Bisbano’s home on Nov. 5. He was interviewed by Remington and Swyers, at which time “he admitted that he had intentionally obtained personal information, utilized his computer to apply for credit cards and loans, and then upon receipt of credit cards, completed purchases of goods and services with those credit cards.
Bisbano is being charged with obtaining credit card through fraudulent means, identity fraud, fraudulent use of credit cards, and using a computer for fraudulent purposes. He was arraigned in 6th District Court.
