Ben & Jerry’s Fraudster Jumps In Hoboken Dumpster To Evade Arrest

Ben & Jerry's

A Brooklyn man who bought 12 $100 gift cards with a fake credit card at a Ben & Jerry’s at Hoboken, New Jersey, dropped a pile of phony credit cards and jumped into a dumpster in an attempt to evade arrest, as reported by Hoboken police warned merchants to be on the lookout for credit card scams, and said that fake cards don’t often have numbers embossed under the raised ones. Also, buying gift cards by the dozens is popular among scammers.

Johnny Taylor, 34 exhibited suspicious behavior and, since he bought an unusual number of gift cards, the police were called. Taylor at first attempted to deny he was the customer, but when he was identified, he made a run for it and hopped into a dumpster. The police discovered 15 fake credit cards in Taylor’s wallet, which was dropped while he ran. The cards were all under the name of “Neil Anderson.” Taylor is held in Hudson County jail in lieu of $15, 000 bail.

Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield, founder of the legendary ice cream brand which is now owned by Unilever, were the target of social media fury from right wing commenters who objected to the pair “politicizing ice cream” with their support of the “Black Lives Matter” campaign in the wake of police brutality and ensuing riots in Ferguson, Missouri. The pair have developed a brand in loving memory of Bob Marley called “Satisfy my Bowl.” The flavor consists of banana, caramel, cookie swirls and chocolate peace signs. It is only available in the UK, and there is currently a petition to bring it the U.S.
