Car purchased using Bentonville woman’s stolen identity


CHRISTINE NANCE LEFT HER CAR
UNLOCKED AFTER A GROCERY RUN
BACK IN OCTOBER. WHEN SHE WENT
BACK OUT TO THE CAR— HER PURSE
WAS GONEAND
THAT’S ONLY THE BEGINNING OF THE STORY.  
 
 
 
“I normally always pull my car into the garage. And I didn’t
pull into the garage we were
getting groceries out and it
started to rain and I left my
purse in the car.” THAT SIMPLE
MISTAKE BACK I OCTOBER IS NOW LEAVING A CHARGE WORTH TENS OF THOUSANDS OF
DOLLARS ON HER CREDIT CARD. IT
STARTED LIKE THIS— ACCORDING
TO
POLICE-TWO MEN TRIED TO USE HER
CREDIT CARD AT THE WALMART ON WALNUT IN ROGERS. BUT THE ACCOUNT WAS ALREADY FROZEN— SO
NO MONEY WAS
TAKEN. “I had a freeze on my
credit for several months, got
everything issued new had my
mail held at the post office and went
through all those
steps.” CHRISTINE THOUGHT THIS
WAS
ALL OVER UNTIL A WOMAN USED
THIS FAKE I-D TO BUY A BRAND-NEW DODGE CHALLENGER-WORTH MORE THAN
30- THOUSAND DOLLARS WITH CHRISTINE’S CREDIT CARD. “She
knew where I worked she had a
driver’s license that had all my
information on
it, DOB, home address,
everything.” “She bought it on June 15th, the
dealership tried
to reach out to her and she had
bogus phone
numbers and they started to dig
in and did a search and found me on social media websites.” AT
THAT POINT, SHE TURNED TO
FACEBOOK
TO FIND SOME ANSWERS. SHE POSTED
A PHOTO OF THE WOMAN ON FRIDAY
AND BY MONDAY IT HAD ALMOST 900 SHARES. “Within a day I had so
many messages identifying who
exactly
the woman was and that they’d
seen her driving
the vehicle and the description of the
vehicle.” POLICE IN LAWTON SAY
THEY’RE LOOKING FOR THE WOMAN,
BUT CHRISTINE SAYS SHE STILL FEELS UNEASY. “It’s scary
because she still has my
identification
she could still go out and get
in trouble under my name”
   
 
I CALLED THE CAR DEALERSHIP IN LAWTON AND THEY SAY THEY GOT THE
STOLEN VEHICLE BACK TODAY. IT
DIDN’T HAVE ANY WHEELS ON IT AND
THEY ARE WORKING WITH LAWTON
POLICE TO TRY TO FIND THE WOMAN
WHO BOUGHT IT. LIVE IN BENTONVILLE, EMMA CLAYBROOK,
