Buffalo man indicted on mail/wire fraud charges

A federal grand jury in Buffalo has returned a 10-count indictment charging Daryl J. Chase, 42 of Buffalo, with mail and wire fraud, according to U.S. Attorney William J. Hochul Jr.


Chase faces up to 20 years in prison and a fine of $250,000.


Assistant U.S. Attorney Edward H. White, who is handling the case, said Chase is charged with operating a fraudulent vending machine sales business under five different names.


The indictment alleges that Chase advertised vending machine equipment for sale on the Internet prompting six individuals to pay him $19,338 to buy the equipment, but the defendant neither delivered the vending machines nor refunded the payments
