He told police that he was supposed to send all the money back to his friend in France, but did not know what his share of the money would have been.

After the initial investigation, police charged him with making fake electronic cards, either the whole card or some part of the card, modifying the wording on the real electronic card, and having used the cards, or having in his belonging the cards while knowing they were fake.
