Details of the incident : A man using the name James Appiah provided a driver's license, valid credit card, a temporary insurance policy that he took out in that name and filled out all rental forms. He picked up the lenses and never returned. The phone number now goes to a Google Voice message, the credit card has been deactivated, and the police have determined the New York driver's license was a very good fake. The man had a thick African accent.
