Woman makes $17,887 in credit card purchases using ex’s ID

A Dauphin County woman uses her ex-husband identification to run up $17,887.09 in credit card purchases. Pennsylvania State Police say Caryn Louise Karl, 43, of Millersburg, used her ex-husband’s name, date of birth, social security number and address without his permission to open a Discover, Capital One, Chase Freedom and two American Express credit cards.  Karl had been divorced from her ex-husband for three years.

Karl used the two American Express cards and made multiple purchases totaling $9,443.93 on one card and $8,443.16 on the other card. The purchases began in April and continued until the end of June of this year.

Charges against Karl include two counts of Theft by Deception, two counts of Access Device Fraud, 5 counts of Identity Theft and Possessing Instruments of Crime.  She was arraigned and released on $10,000 unsecured bail.

    Of course you would blame it on child support. Because god knows if she even has a child!?!? Typical women. Trying to make the women the victim. Our society is screwed

      Ok maybe it wasnt child support….your right…..he probably committed adultery while he was married to her. So that was her way of getting even!

    Another pitfall of the marriage/divorce cycle. Be smart. Don't bother with politically correct marriage.
