Guam - Two Chinese nationals who were caught on Guam in possession of more than two dozen fraudulent credit cards were sentenced to two years behind bars with credit for time served.  Choon Boon Tan and Kuan Siong Tan previously pleaded guilty to aggravated identity theft.  They admitted to the feds that they came to Guam intending to purchase high end electronics and deliver them to an individual in Malaysia. 

They said they were given the credit cards and sent to Guam in order to pay off their gambling debts.  They will be placed on supervised release for one year after their prison term.
