A former South Dakota State University secretary has been arrested after she opened up credit card accounts under a co-worker's name.
According to court documents, 38-year-old Kari Lynn Fuks was arrested on the SDSU campus on December 5, charged with three felony counts of identity theft and two felony counts of grand theft. Fuks allegedly opened up three credit cards between March and September of this year under the name of a fellow secretary in the SDSU Chemistry department.
That woman discovered the suspicious credit cards and contacted the companies last month. Fuks is accused of spending more than $35,000 on three credit cards she had opened since March.
A search on the university's online staff directory doesn't list Fuks as an employee.
Fuks made her first court appearance on Monday.
