We got Alyssa T.’s Boca Raton credit card fraud case dropped with no arrest, no filed charges and no mugshot online.
Alyssa is very trusting and naive, and works at an animal rescue shelter. Alyssa was nervous that this incident could ruin her life when she was only following the instructions of someone whom she trusted.
A year and a half after a relationship ended, Alyssa got a call from a detective saying that she was being investigated for credit card fraud – related to a card that she had used from the man she’d been in relationship with.
Alyssa had become friendly with an older man from the social circles in Boca Raton, Florida. The man claimed that he was a businessman, but had a history of shady drug deals and drug usage. The man was in the process of divorcing his wife, so he and Alyssa moved in together as roommates.
The man’s wife was trying to win all of his money, so he started trying to buy businesses but each deal fell through. When Alyssa decided that she wanted to start a business, the man gave her one of her own authorized credit cards from his account.
He instructed Alyssa to not open a business account and to set up the paypal to go directly into her personal account. He also told her not to get a loan, as they needed to have purchases to show that they were making money. Each time Alyssa bought something on his card, she asked for his permission first and he agreed. He told her that they were doing everything together, but he did not put his name on anything related to the business.
After about four or five months of living together, the man went into rehab. While there, he decided to get back together with his wife. He moved out of their apartment and decided to do chargebacks for every charge that Alyssa ran saying that it was fraud so that he could get his money back. The bank called the police to do an investigation into Alyssa after the accusations. A year and a half later, Alyssa got a call from a detective saying that she was being investigated for credit card fraud.
Once Alyssa hired us, we made sure that she was never arrested. We had Alyssa go through all of her communications with the man to prove that he had knowledge of each purchase and flat out lied to the detective.
The detective gave us time to complete our own investigation, since she had taken a year and a half. Every time the detective asked us questions about Alyssa, we were able to denounce each accusation with proof that the man knew what Alyssa was doing. After this, the detective agreed that Alyssa was not at fault and closed the case.
