dunkin-donuts.jpgDunkin’ Donuts is the best. You folks in Boston know what I’m talking about and, to a lesser extent, so do many of my other East Coast homies. Out here on the Left Coast, y’all don’t have a clue what you’re missing. It’s not just donuts and coffee. Nope — it’s also gift card scams!

Kevin Nguyen was recently arrested for a rather interesting scam he was running with an alleged accomplice:

A man was accused Wednesday of using stolen credit cards to buy thousands of dollars worth of Dunkin’ Donuts gift cards.
He then used the stolen cards to purchase soft drinks from the chain and resell them to other stores, according to Boston Police.
“We have hundreds of victims throughout the United States,” Boston Police Department Detective Steven Blair said. “They would purchase a Dunkin’ Donuts gift card, for say, $5, and they would go back, use their laptop computers, go online and re-up the gift cards up to $200. They would use stolen credit card numbers.”
Police said that the pair bought $100,000 in Dunkin’ Donuts cards using the stolen credit cards. They then purchased beverages to sell and pocket the money. Officials said that it’s been going on for three to four months.
Claiming they were buying soft drinks for attendees at a conference, which never really existed, police said that they turned their merchandise into cash.
“They would come with trucks and load up pallets of boxes of sodas and coffee. What they would do is they would take those goods and they would go around to small mom and pop stores throughout the Boston area and sell it to the mom and pop stores for 50 percent,” Blair said.

This sort of thing would never happen at the far superior Krispy Kreme. The criminals would be too distracted by the delicious donuts. Oh, wait, that would me distracted by the delicious donuts.

Mmmmmmm. Donuts.
