SHARE Police: Woman tried to charge $3K to bogus credit card at Northbrook mall

A Chicago woman has been charged with identity theft after police say she was caught trying to use a fraudulent credit card to buy more than $3,000 in merchandise at a north suburban mall Saturday.

Raven A. Osborne, 29, was arrested at a store in the Northbrook Court mall in the 1500 block of Lake Cook Road in Northbrook at 6:47 p.m. after she presented the store clerk with a credit card and ID that the clerk did not believe matched her, according to a statement from Northbrook police.

She had tried to purchase $3,021 in merchandise with the fraudulent card, police said. Officers contacted the actual cardholder, who said luggage containing personal identification had been lost while traveling through O’Hare International Airport a few days earlier.

Osborne, of the 400 block of East Erie, is charged with aggravated identity theft, theft by deception and forgery, police said.

She is being held on a $15,000 bond and is next scheduled to appear in court July 20 in Skokie, according to the Cook County sheriff’s office.
