Eau Claire man arrested for credit card fraud


EAU CLAIRE - An Eau Claire man is accused of running up thousands of dollars in charges in a case of credit card fraud.

Peter Davey is charged with using the credit card to buy more than $8,000 in merchandise at stores in Eau Claire and Chippewa Falls. The credit card company says someone had called and impersonated a California woman who had a credit card with them.

The caller requested that a duplicate card be sent to Davey. Police say he told them he had an online girlfriend who lived in Nigeria. She allegedly arranged for ten credit cards to be sent to him.

According to police, Davey said he was then instructed to use the cards to purchase items and send them to Malaysia. He now faces three felony charges.
