Devonte Delon Clark, 28, of a McRae address, has been arrested and charged with financial transaction card fraud after he allegedly took money from someone else’s bank account and also opened up a CareCredit account in the complainant’s name without authorization.
According to a report from the Coffee County Sheriff’s Office, the complainant spoke to a deputy and stated that he believed that Clark had taken $60 from his account without authorization. The complainant said that Clark has lived in his house “off and on” because of a relationship the complaint has with Clark’s mother.
The complainant also showed the officer a CareCredit statement in his name with a $1,985.70 balance. The complainant said he never had a CareCredit account and he believed that Clark was the one who opened the account.
On March 14, Clark was arrested and charged with financial transaction card fraud and transported to the Coffee County Jail. He has not been released.
This is not Clark’s first charge for alleged financial crimes. He was charged with forgery in the first degree in January of last year when he allegedly attempted to pass a counterfeit $50 bill at the Dollar General store located in Oak Park.
