Financial Identity Fraud

Financial Identity Fraud

 

At approximately 0948 hours on 03/21/17 Sgt. Jim Bush was dispatched to the Hempstead County Sheriff Office lobby in reference to Financial Identity Fraud.

 

Upon my arrival, he made contact with the victim who stated that he is in the process of getting a divorce. He stated that after him and his soon to be Ex-Wife separated she without his knowledge applied for a Master Credit Card under his name. He stated that she has since charged around $400-$500 to the card. He stated that she told him in a phone conversation that she used his card to buy something and he asked her what she was talking about and she told him she got a card under his name. Victim stated that he does not want to pursue charges and only wants to report it so he can report this to the Master Card Fraud Department to have them close the account.
