A man managed to get people to give him their credit card information before using them to buy pizza.
The man used the credit card information to order pizza for himself and his wife, and he made the victims pay.
44-year-old Larry Harrington of Port Orange, Florida, was arrested after police said he used stolen credit cards to buy more than $1,400 in food, mostly pizza, and charged it to the victims’ cards.
Harrington was arrested on 2 counts of fraud and one count of organized scheme to defraud, and was released after posting $20,000 bond.
The Port Orange Police Department believes that his wife, Dawn Harrington, 44, was in on the scheme. So far, she has not been charged.
Police were called by Mya Thuzar, who is the owner of Luigi’s Pizza, to report the theft. Thuzar said that someone placed two orders, but the credit card was denied as it was stolen.
During the investigation, officers discovered that Harrington ordered food from six different restaurants in the city and had all of the food delivered to his house on Sugar House Drive.
Detectives said that Harrington got the personal information from people who had previously sold timeshares in the area of Daytona Beach.
Harrington used the name Donna Brooks, and said that he told the victims that they were due a refund after Florida’s Attorney General found that the seller of their timeshares was guilty of fraud.
The victims gave their credit card information so that they can get the refund, police said. Harrington then used the credit cards to buy pizza.
