Some individuals allegedly worked with USPS Postal Services to steal credit cards from the mail before they were delivered to designated customers, beginning in or around 2018, according to the Department of Justice.

These individuals are accused of using stolen credit cards in high-end retail stores and selling some items purchased from LuxurySnob.com.

The website billed itself as an “online delivery and personal shopping company” specializing in “used luxury items,” but the Department of Justice said many of those items were purchased using stolen credit cards.

Nathanael Foucault, Jonathan Perso and Fabiola Mompoint – all postal workers – were arrested. Devon Richards, who is not a postal worker, was also arrested, while five other defendants remain at large, according to the Justice Department.

“The defendants have taken advantage of the public trust we place in the US Postal Service for their own financial gain,” U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York Damian Williams said in a statement. “Thanks to the diligence of the USPIS, the NYPD and the USPS-OIG, the defendants will now be held accountable for their brazen criminal behavior.”
