Two women jailed for using credit cards that weren't theirs

Posted: Updated:

For using credit cards they didn't own, two people have been placed under arrest following multiple suspicious credit card transactions happening over a six-month period.

Candelaria Ferminia Acfalle Blas and Abigail Maanao Caporno are charged with theft of property, fraudulent use of a credit card and conspiracy.

A major department store filed the complaint in September 2018, according to Police. Investigators learned the suspects were using a pre-paid "My Vanilla" debit card. Authorities said the suspects would allegedly use the card to buy items well below the value amount and then would collect the full value amount of the card.

This apparently took place between March and September of last year with the suspects racking up transactions at more than $40,000.
