The arrest of two women last week may have unveiled a scheme to use fake debit cards to get cash advances at various casinos.

Deshmia Alexander, 22, Indianapolis, and Keonna Cole, 28, Fort Wayne, are charged in the alleged fraud.

From WTTV:

According to court documents, Alexander received $2,400 in two transactions at Hoosier Park Racing & Casino on Nov. 22. Agents with the Indiana Gaming Commission said video showed her arriving at the casino around 3:30 a.m. and using a Fifth Third Bank debit card to get cash advances. Two other attempts to get money during the transaction were denied.

Investigators contacted the bank and discovered Alexander opened an account on Nov. 10. She deposited a fraudulent check for $2,493.58, according to court documents. The check was from Forge Industrial Staffing and payable to Alexander.

On. Nov. 25, the check was returned as “unable to locate.” Investigators later discovered the account number was invalid.

Both women are facing felony charges.
