Thief uses credit card to fuel spending spree

63rd Precinct

Marine Park—Mill Basin—Flatlands—Bergen Beach

Bad credit

A thief used a Flatlands resident’s identity to fuel a $463 spending spree beginning June 24.

Credit One Bank billed the E. 43rd Street resident bank statements on a credit card that he never applied for, with charges including airline tickets, gas purchases, and meals from a Kings County McDonalds.

Identity crisis

An identity thief swindled a Mill Basin woman out of $10,784 beginning May 13.

The thief likely used “E-check” services and the E. 58th Street resident’s bank account number to make purchases, cops said.
