An Ohio company gets credit from the FBI for putting an immigrant student, who raised suspicions when he tried to order thousands of dollars worth of pilot information, in federal custody.

What raised the red flag is the credit card he used was declined. It was then that federal agents began to investigate.

Mahmoud Maawad is an Egyptian-born citizen living in the U.S. illegally. According to an affidavit, Maawad "placed 11 orders by wire" to Sporty's Pilot Shop located near Cincinnati "for flight equipment."

FBI agents say the 29-year-old logged on to the website for Sporty's Pilot Shop and tried to buy $3,300 in merchandise, including pilot clothes, airline software, an airport map and a DVD entitled, "How An Airline Pilot Should Look."

There's nothing illegal about that, but when the credit card was rejected for lack of funds, the store called the authorities.

FBI agents later raided his apartment in Memphis and discovered a fake social security number that they say he used to open a credit card account and enroll at the University of Memphis. They also found flight simulation software and detailed information of the Memphis airport.

Agents say Maawad once attended Bergen Community College in Patterson, New Jersey, the same city where six of the of September 11th hijackers lived.

Maawad's visa expired five years ago. He's currently charged with using a fake social security card and wire fraud. The FBI says it has no evidence that he has any connection to a terrorist group.

Sporty's Pilot Shop says it doesn't comment on issues of national security.

Well yeah, but technically, that's all right? I know I would set off alarms with the alphabet police if I ordered alot of the same crap, but it isnt illegal.

Just a FYI:

BCC is in Paramus, NJ, not Paterson, NJ. Paterson, NJ is home to crackheads and meth addicts and dealers. Paramus is a very commercial area with LOTS of malls and businesses.

Not illegal, but sounds pretty suspect to me. Deport his ass and ban him from ever returning!
