WSAZ 3 Huntington - (West Virginia) Authorities in Bourboursville, West Virginia, arrested 4 individuals they dubbed the "Chinese Mafia" the week of September 7 after finding over 100 fake credit cards and merchandise bought using stolen credit card information. Officials believe that the suspects, who are all from the New England, are part of a larger organized crime ring, and that they skimmed card information using a pocket device while working at West Virginia area Chinese restaurants.
