Florida Woman Arrested After She Used A Victim’s Credit Card To Make Multiple Yahtzee In-App Purchases On Her Cellphone

A 60-year-old Florida woman was arrested after she used a victim’s credit card to make multiple in-app purchases on her cellphone.

On February 4, a Marion County Sheriff’s Office corporal was assigned a case for investigation that involved the fraudulent use of a credit card.

According to the MCSO report, on December 28, an MCSO deputy responded to a SE 122nd Lane residence and met a male victim who had lived with a former tenant named Desira Jean Morner.

The victim stated that he knew Morner by the name “Jean Allmon.” He told the deputy that Morner had made multiple purchases using his credit card.

Since the victim often left his wallet on a living room table, he stated that Morner would have had access to the credit card.

On January 5, an MCSO detective who was originally assigned to the case spoke with the victim. According to the victim, a list of fraudulent transactions was located that belonged to an account under the name “Jean Allmon.”

The victim showed this list to the detective. All of the purchases were for a Yahtzee cellphone app. One purchase was made on November 22, 2021 ($19.99), several purchases were made on November 23, 2021 ($4.99 and $19.99), and several more purchases were made on November 24, 2021 ($4.99 and $19.99).

The victim’s credit card was charged for a total of $69.95.

On February 8, the MCSO corporal who was assigned the case visited Morner’s residence. The corporal observed that she was playing games on her cellphone. She stated that she plays Yahtzee, and the game rewards her by providing free gift cards.

Morner admitted that she used the victim’s credit card to make in-app purchases on her cellphone, but she claimed that she was allowed to make those purchases. She stated that she had an agreement with the victim to use his credit card, and she would reimburse him for any of the purchases she had made.

When the corporal asked Morner how much she had spent on those purchases, she was unable to provide an answer. The corporal observed in the MCSO report that she did not keep track of the money owed to the victim and likely did not have an agreement.

During the interview with the corporal, Morner eventually admitted that she may have used the victim’s credit card “a couple of times without permission.”

Morner was arrested, transported to Marion County Jail, and she was later released on $5,500 bond. She is facing a felony charge for fraudulent use of a credit card (more than two times in six months) and a misdemeanor charge for petit theft.
