Two Milwaukee women allegedly withdrew $1,800 from a man's bank account after tricking him into revealing his TYME card PIN code and then stealing the card.
Mandisa Randolph, 22, and Brittaney Hill, 23, are charged in Brown County Circuit Court with six misdemeanor counts of fraudulent use of a credit card. Prosecutors say additional charges could be forthcoming.
The two women picked up a 25-year-old Green Bay man downtown as he was awaiting a taxi at bar close time on Feb. 21. They persuaded him to withdraw $100 from his savings account, which he did at an ATM machine from the backseat of the women's car, while the women apparently watched.
As one of the women drove, he and the other woman began kissing in the backseat, during which time she apparently picked his pocket, the complaint says.
With him still in the car, the women made several stops, apparently using his card to make cash withdrawals, the complaint says. He became suspicious and questioned them, but they kicked him out of the car.
He then realized his debit card was missing. He canceled it as soon as he got home, about 4:11 a.m., but not before the two managed to make 18 unauthorized transactions on his account, the complaint says.
The alleged victim told police he was hanging out Saturday at a downtown bar and saw the same two women approach his roommate and persuade him to leave with them and get into their car. Police already had the women under surveillance and arrested the two as they tried to make a withdrawal from an area bank.
Police indicated Monday morning that the two may have been involved in a pattern of similar incidents dating at least back to Feb. 13. The two likely could be charged with as many as 39 counts of fraudulent use of credit cards, police said.
The suspects made initial court appearances Monday. Both remain in the Brown County Jail in lieu of $10,000 cash bonds, and both are scheduled to be back in court April 5.
