LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) - Six men and women face federal charges of using counterfeit credit cards to defraud Wyoming and Colorado fast-food restaurants.

The six, who are all from New York, are charged with conspiracy to commit access device fraud.

The Laramie Boomerang reports (https://bit.ly/29pjdpi ) that federal court documents accuse them of using counterfeit credit cards to purchase gift cards.

According to the documents, officials with the McDonald’s Corp. say more than $10,000 in gift cards were purchased from restaurants in the Denver, Wellington, Loveland and Fort Collins areas with fake credit cards.

The six were arrested after police were called by the McDonald’s in Laramie on June 15.

Authorities say they have confiscated more than 1,000 gift cards, a credit card reader and a machine used for printing credit cards.
