JOHNS CREEK, Ga. — Police are investigating a case of credit card fraud reported June 24 in which someone charged $8,455 on a Johns Creek woman’s card, primarily for dental care.
The woman told police that she uses the card for the majority of her purchases including at the gas pump, online and restaurants, but she is unsure how her card was compromised.
Police learned the suspect set up a dental appointment in Hoover, Alabama. The employee who set up the appointment identified the suspected credit card thief as a woman from their conversations over the phone. The dentist’s office requires pre-payment for their services, and the dentist’s office worker said that the woman was persistent about getting the appointment soon.
The Johns Creek woman still had her card at the time of the call, police said.
