Demi Moore's credit card allegedly swiped by man who spent $169G
Demi Moore was targeted in a credit-card scam in which a man spent $169,000 using her information, federal prosecutors charged.
A man named David Matthew Read allegedly found a way to request a new card for Moore by claiming in March that her’s had gone missing, TMZ reported, citing a complaint filed by prosecutors.
He then allegedly obtained the card himself once it was shipped by FedEx and racked up the massive bill by shopping at stores around Los Angeles, according to the complaint.
The prosecutors claim Read, 35, admitted to the crime in April after he was caught on multiple surveillance cameras and tracked down by authorities. He is reportedly in custody at the Los Angeles County Jail.
Reps for Moore, 55, did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Moore is best known for her starring roles in movies such as “Indecent Proposal,” “Striptease” and “Ghost.”
The actress was recently cast as the lead in the 2019 comedy “Corporate Animals” about a tour group that gets trapped in a cave and must figure out how to survive.
