Woman admits credit card scam
A 27-year-old District woman admitted Friday in federal court that she participated in a scheme to pay bills and buy items using stolen credit card and bank account information.
Dawn Marshall pleaded guilty to one count of fraud, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office for the District of Columbia. Five other people already have pleaded guilty in connection with the case.
According to federal officials, Marshall was part of a ring that obtained financial information about victims by stealing mail and credit card receipts from places including a medical office in the District and other businesses.
The defendants would charge to legitimate accounts opened by the victims. In all, the ring targeted more than 179 corporate and individual victims and made about $1.2 million in fraudulent transactions.
Authorities said Marshall had a role in more than $14,000 in fraudulent transactions. Some of the items were sent to her District home, they said.
