Niyha Eutsey of Miami, Florida was arrested last Monday for allegedly attempting to use fraudulent credit cards to buy electronics at a Target store in Coral Springs. Eutsey, 28, is facing grand theft and credit card fraud charges. She was held in lieu of a $15,000 bond, which she posted on Tuesday. The press did not mention an attorney for Eutsey.
According to the police report, Eutsey purportedly used a fraudulent credit card to try and buy an iPad, a 55-inch TV, gaming consoles, and a game at a Target store in Coral Springs on August 8. News sources did not disclose the total value of the items.
The store employee who served Eutsey claims to have recognized her because she had attempted to pay for items using several declined credit cards on a different occasion. On August 8, Eutsey’s card was once again declined. She reportedly left the store and later returned with the same credit card, which declined again. This purportedly happened a third time, and Eutsey ultimately used a different credit card to complete the transaction.
On the way home, Eutsey was stopped by police because of the window tinting on her vehicle. During that stop, police found out that there was an arrest warrant for Eutsey that was filed in 2014. The warrant reportedly was in connection to 50 fraudulent cash advances that were made at the Seminole Classic Casino with someone’s stolen credit card information. The 2014 warrant reportedly charged Eutsey with unlawful creation, use, and possession of fake personal ID information, as well as unlawful possession of personal IDs.
Records show that the fraudulent transactions took place towards the end of 2014. Eutsey is implicated because the checks used to make the cash advances allegedly have her fingerprints on them. Eutsey was taken into police custody and now faces charges for credit card fraud and grand theft.
