  • News:  Credit Card Fraud; How Do They Do It? 60

    A Canadian woman will spend the next two years in prison for credit card fraud. Jane Elizabeth Moore lied, manipulated, stole credit card information, and committed forgery against dozens of merchants. Judge Allan Fradsham said Moore's theft was small in the scheme of things while the work put into her plans were "very substantial." As a result of some of Moore's activities, several store employees were terminated because she convinced store managers that the employees had wronged her. Moore was not a stranger to the legal system; she had a long rap sheet consisting of 17 convictions, including credit card and other frauds. Included in the 80 counts of criminal activity, Moore was also charged with 27 charges of breaching probation, breach of release conditions and failing to attend court. She pleaded guilty to 53 of the 80 charges. After her release from prison, Moore will be on a two year probationary period with close supervision under the Priority Prolific Offender Program for repeat offenders.

    Back in the U.S., an Akron, Ohio man pleaded guilty to credit card information theft of a dry cleaners business. Michael Bukuts allegedly stole the card information from customers of his mother's business. To date, 100 victims have stepped forward saying their credit card information had been stolen after visiting the dry cleaners. Bukuts is no stranger to the legal system; he served three years in federal prison between 2003 and 2005 for embezzling $4 million from his previous employer. He faces a maximum of 40 years in prison for engaging in a pattern of corrupt activity, telecommunications fraud, identification fraud, grand theft, passing bad checks, forgery, theft from the elderly, tampering with records and failure to pay state sales tax.

    The son of the Sweetwater County, WY coroner, Harl Majhanovich admitted to using his father's county credit card for personal use. He was also charged with writing over $1,000 in fraudulent checks for a checking account that was previously closed. Majhanovich pleaded guilty to the charges and was sentenced to 2 to 7 years in prison and ordered to pay $11,000 in restitution.
