$40,000 credit card scheme brings charges in Fort Wayne
From August to October 2013, police believe Doris J. Hembree charged more than
$48,000 to stolen credit cards. Hembree was working with other unidentified
people in a scheme carried out largely online. Using her information, the other
people took over existing credit card accounts and then created new credit cards
using her name and the valid information from the existing accounts. In just a
few months, she charged $48,456.96 on four different cards to buy a variety of
electronics from Best Buy and Walmart. Those items were then shipped to other
destinations using pre-purchased freight tickets provided to her.
