ROANOKE, Va. (WFXR) — A Buchanan woman accused of using three individuals’ credit card accounts at a Roanoke store was sentenced Tuesday to 24 months in federal prison after pleading guilty in February to multiple credit card fraud charges, officials say.
According to court documents, on three different occasions, 61-year-old Patricia Moseley used credit card accounts opened by three individuals — CS, RC, and PJ — to obtain a total of $5,475 in merchandise from Best Buy on Valley View Boulevard in Roanoke without the permission or knowledge of the card holders.
More specifically, officials say that Moseley bought $1,368 in merchandise from Best Buy on June 30, 2016 using PJ’s credit card account without their knowledge or consent. Then, on July 6, 2016, Moseley purchased $2,737 in merchandise using the credit card account of CS without their permission or knowledge.
Moseley pleaded guilty in February to three counts of access device fraud, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Western District of Virginia said in a statement on Tuesday, Aug. 31.
The case — which was investigated by the United States Secret Service and Virginia State Police — is reportedly being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Charlene R. Day.
