I believe there is probable cause to charge the defendant with these charges because:
On 01/23/2020, officers of American Fork Police were contacted by loss prevention employees of American Fork Walmart
regarding an Asian female who was identified as being involved in a credit card fraud in Utah and Salt Lake Counties. The
female’s accomplice was stopped in Saratoga Springs by officers at Walmart. Both individuals have been identified as part of a
Chinese criminal organization by Walmart. Walmart briefed officers regarding the organizations activities which included Walmart
locations throughout the United States and through the Mid-West. Walmart utilized video surveillance and membership
information to identify the suspects. The organization had been identified by Walmart as using fraudulent credit card information
obtained from online and phone phishing scams. The organization then used the information to purchase gift cards in mass
quantities to resale them for profit. Walmart identified the organization has been functioning since October of 2019 and has
caused up to and in excess of $600,000.00 worth of loss from the company.

The female was observed in the store purchasing numerous (thousands of dollars) worth of gift cards using her phone at the
self-check-out register. Officers located a vehicle which matched the description of one given by Walmart as being involved in
the fraud organization. Officers waited for the female to get to the vehicle after leaving the store and then approached her. The
female was in possession of several bags full of gift cards. The female was detained in hand cuffs and it was discovered she
didn’t speak English very well and was from China. A search warrant was obtained for the vehicle and officers located hundreds
of gift cards from Walmart’s in several cities including American Fork, Cedar Hills, Pleasant Grove, Lindon, Draper, Sandy, South
Jordan, etc. Several of the gift cards had already had their serial numbers revealed after they were activated. The dollar value
from American Fork Walmart alone was approximately $8400.00 with roughly 11 victims information used from all over the
United States. Walmart was able to check the transaction for the local cities in Utah County (American Fork, Pleasant Grove,
Lindon and Cedar Hills) and determined the loss to be approximately $25,000.00 from this criminal episode alone.

The female was identified by HSI Agents as Shuyan Wang. It was discovered she arrived in American on a travel Visa on
12/18/2019. Shuyan Wang has no ties to the area and I believe she is a flight risk. The vehicle she was traveling in was a rental
car out of Las Vegas Nevada. She had been identified by Walmart in Utah and Idaho. If Shuyan is released there is a high likely
hood she will flee and head back to China. Officers are requesting Shuyan remain in custody until the judge has the ability to
review the information.
By submitting this affidavit, I declare under criminal penalty of the State of Utah that the foregoing is true and correct.
