by on April 19, 2012

APPLE VALLEY, Minn.- Rhonda Michelle Mitchell, 39, is facing two felony charges for using stolen credit card information to make a car loan payment. She was charged in Dakota County with one count of financial transaction card fraud and one count of identity theft. The maximum penalty Mitchell can receive is a $20,000 fine and ten years in prison.

Mitchell was employed at an Eagan financial marketing company where she worked as a collections representative. According to the police, Mitchell assisted an out of state customer to make a payment over the phone. This allowed Mitchell to have access to the victim’s credit card number, security code, and expiration date on the card.

A few weeks later, a payment to an auto loan company was charged to the victim’s card. Someone from the loan company alerted police that Mitchell had made the payment. Mitchell told police that a friend made the payment for her.
