Woman charged with $30K credit card fraud

Posted: Updated:

Police have charged Linda F. Thum, 64, of New Holland, with credit card fraud.

On April 9, Bank of America contacted police regarding a credit card takeover. The investigation revealed that Thum had added her name to a customer's credit card account and received two credit cards.

Officials say Thum took the cards to the Bank of America branches on Fruitville Pike and Centerville Road in December, getting four cash advances that totaled $30,000.

She also used the credit card to make a purchase at a Turkey Hill in Manheim Township that totaled $39.60, according to police.

In a police interview, officials say Thum admitted to sending the cash she receives to various individuals by mail, keeping some of the money for herself.

Thum is charged with five counts of access device fraud and four counts of theft by deception. She was arraigned Tuesday and released on $50,000 bail.
