Man arrested for credit card fraud

Authorities have captured a man for multi-level credit card scam. Larry Davis Jr. Davis was arrested by authorities and was charged with theft. The Bogalusa Police Department is also looking for the other suspects. According to Major Joe Culpepper, the man who was arrested does not work alone. There are other individuals to help him use credit cards to deceive people and companies.


The Bogalusa Police Department started to track the people behind the credit card fraud after several credit card companies reported that some of their cards were used illegally. Culpepper also added that the actual use of one of the duplicated cards was caught by a CCTV camera inside a grocery store.


The video that was shown includes a woman who used the card to buy her goods from the store. Due to the fact, the scanner was not able to read the credit card, the woman entered the numbers manually. This prompted the cashier to ask the security details from the woman. But the woman had an answer to the security questions.


Culpepper then warned the public that people who are engaged in credit card fraud and deception have the ability to answer and process security questions from the card. He also added that the information needed for each credit card stolen or illegally duplicated can be easily accessed by other people. Moreover, the numbers in each credit card that are being used by fraudsters belong to actual people. They do not even know that their credit cards were duplicated or stolen.


For several months, authorities have tracked and recorded the woman`s usage of the fraudulent cards in almost 50 establishments in some parts of Mississippi and Louisiana. The woman is said to have a rose tattoo near her chest. Davis claimed that he is not associated with the woman. He does not even know her name and where the woman lives. The authorities are looking at whether this is true or not.


Culpepper also noted that the David and the woman are not the only persons that they are focused on. There are also other fraudulent people who might be employing credit card frauds and tactics. In the two states alone, more than $60,000 has been reported to be a stolen due to credit card fraud. He said that businessmen and other people should become extra cautious in every transaction, they make using credit cards.
