Guam - Sheng Hsuan Lin (aka, "Shingo Tada") was remanded to federal custody after he was caught using bogus credit cards at Duty Free Shoppers.  According to a complaint filed with the District Court, Lin said he paid $3,000 over the Internet for the counterfeit credit cards and fake passport to come to Guam.   

Lin tried to use the bogus cards to make more than $9,000 worth of high-end luxury item purchases. Authorities learned the Diner's Club cards he tried to use contained MasterCard information.  Lin was staying at the Guam Reef Hotel and may have been working with two other Chinese individuals. 

A preliminary hearing was scheduled for May 5.
