Multi-State Credit Card Scam Busted

  • {Paintsville, Kentucky}...Johnson County Sheriff's Deputies busted a multi-state credit card operation at a home in Paintsville, seizing thousands of dollars worth of items, including watches, jewelry, perfume, shoes, clothes, and dozens of other items. Investigators say each item was purchased on the Internet with a stolen credit card number, involving victims in Oregon, Texas, Florida, Utah, Arizona, California, and Kentucky. The items were shipped to a home in Paintsville. Deputies went to the home and said the woman living there told them a man she met on the internet was buying the items and shipping them to her house and had asked her to mail them to him in New Jersey and Ghana. She said she did not know they were bought with stolen credit cards.
