LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Police say a Louisville woman spent more than $8,000 using credit cards her boyfriend stole from customers.
Metro Police detectives say 35-year-old Alicia Boggs' boyfriend Fredrick Clay worked at Payment Alliance, and provided Boggs with customers' credit cards to make purchases and pay bills between July and Nov. 2013.
According to an arrest warrant, police have recorded phone conversations in which Boggs received credit card information from Clay.
In another phone conversation, the warrant says Boggs called her boyfriend at work because she could not find the "list" to pay the bills.
Police say Boggs used the stolen credit cards to pay LG&E bills and car insurance.
Boggs bought a car from Auto Smart and even paid her court costs at Jefferson District Court using the stolen cards, according to police.
The warrant states Pizza Hut delivered $180 worth of pizza to Boggs' address purchased with the stolen credit cards.
Police began the investigation when one of the victims called Payment Alliance about an unauthorized purchase.
Payment Alliance released an official statement Friday afternoon regarding the case:
November of 2013, we contacted the Financial Crimes Unit of the
Louisville Metro Police Department to open an investigation related to
theft of cardholder data by a former employee. It's important to note
that no systems were breached and this was simply an isolated case of
employee theft of cardholder data.
"While this incident involved only 10 cardholder numbers,
Payment Alliance takes the theft of any customer information very
seriously, and we would like to thank the Financial Crimes Unit of the
Louisville Metro Police Department for their swift attention
in helping us resolve this case."
