Nine Rowan University Students Charged in Fraud Scheme

Posted by Joseph D. Lento | Jan 29, 2016 | 0 Comments

Nine Rowan University students have been recently charged in a fraud scheme after it was realized that a Rowan University campus convenience store had $35,000 in accounting irregularities.  The alleged "ringleader" worked at the 7-Eleven on Rowan Boulevard; he is accused of crediting his student debit card account, and the accounts of his friends, with fraudulent merchandise returns.  The nine students used their student debit cards, called "Boro Bucks," to make purchases in Glassboro, New Jersey, and in the surrounding area.  The alleged ringleader was responsible for fraudulent returns totaling $35,000 in losses for the 7-Eleven.  Even the most sophisticated "white collar" criminals at times get caught, and these nine students seemingly had little chance of success in light of Rowan University's new accounting procedures which were implemented in part to identify fraudulent Boro Bucks activity.  In addition to the serious criminal charges they face, Rowan University specifically indicated that the students would be subject to the school's disciplinary process.
