Credit Card Fraud



Police say a 22-year-old Winona man is facing felony charges of financial credit card fraud and forging stolen checks.

Deputy Police Chief Tom Williams said Shawn Michael Fort is accused of making nearly $7,500 in purchases using a credit card he had opened jointly with a Winona woman.
          
The charges were made in June and July but the woman told authorities she did not authorize either the credit card or the charges.

Fort is also accused of stealing some checks from a Winona man in September of 2012 and cashing nine of them worth a total of almost $1,500.

Fort is being held in the Winona County jail on a previous probation violation.
