Someone Bought Jewelry With Illegal Credit Card

Someone is buying jewelry with a bogus credit card, according to Summerville Police Department records.

Tehani Middleton, of Summerville, received a credit card statement in the mail from Kay Jewelers. The problem is that she never opened an account with that company, Summerville Police Detective Ty Hutchins said.

Someone used her identity to obtain the credit card and someone then used it to purchase more than $4,000 worth of items.

“[Middleton] advised that she has not purchased any items from the business this year. [Middleton] advised that she did not authorize any person to obtain a credit card in her name for the transactions that occurred on Feb. 12, 2018,” Det. Hutchins stated.

The transactions took place at Kay Jeweler’s East Point store.
