Xerox Scammed out of Supplies - Customers Buy From Shell Companies


From the City of Brotherly Love - Three guys and some wax.

Three men are accused of ordering supplies from Xerox, through shell companies, and paying for said supplies with false bank accounts.

What do you bet these guys were on the other end of the phone, requesting "serial number and current volumes" from your clients?

Tsk, tsk, tsk...

These three stooges, allegedly ran companies named B&N Group and Huntingdon Valley School of Graphics out of the same office.

They also had a company named Digital Express Graphics authorities reported.

The bootie?

Boxes of ink sticks, $90,000 worth, for the Phaser 7500 color printer - the sticks have not been recovered, police said.

Detectives arrested the men Monday night on several theft-related felonies.

The accused are Nathan Allen Kriegler, 42, of Michael Road in Northampton; Ryan Allan Pollack, 33, of Glen Place in Elkins Park and Evan F. Appel, 33, of Valley Glen Road in Elkins Park.

Each defendant faces six third-degree felonies, which are punishable by up to seven years in prison.
