New York Man Arrested, Charged With Threatening 'Las Vegas Repeat'

At least two of Casillas' electronic communications with the unidentified company included photos of submachine guns, according to a statement by FBI Special Agent Jacqueline Ross that was filed in Brooklyn federal court.

Victor Casillas, 34, was arrested on Tuesday after he tried to extort the unnamed company, which a source identified as the promotional sales app, Ibotta, after they closed multiple accounts he opened to fraudulently "generate referral bonuses", according to the Brooklyn U.S. Attorney's office. The company pays referral bonuses to users who shepherd others to the company's services.

In the past two years, Casillas cashed in on these referrals more than a dozen times.

Authorities have not said that Casillas ever actually travelled to Colorado or possessed guns.

When they discovered he was gaming the system, they closed his duplicate accounts and offered him $40 to end the matter.
