CC Fraud Female Duo Busted in Clarksville, In.
Two women were arrested in Clarksville Indiana and are currently in Clark County Jail for perpetuating and running a highly successful fake credit card ring. The women's modus operendi was to buy iPhones with the stolen credit cards, fence them and sell them for cash, and then load the cash on to different gift cards which they would then use for their own purchases.

Interestingly enough, the police have found that the two women are not friends; in fact, they only met each other less than a week ago.
