CA: Former medical billing employee charged with ID theft
CBS in Los Angeles reports that Reon Jordan, 34, a student at West Los Angeles Community College, was arrested on identity theft charges.
“Additionally, the investigation has revealed that Suspect Jordan afforded herself hair extensions, clothing, jewelry and airline tickets to Alaska with her proceeds from the scheme,” Deputy Kim Manatt said.
Jordan reportedly obtained her victim’s information through her prior employment at ABEO, a medical billing company with offices in Pasadena.
“She had been employed by the company since 2008, where she potentially had access to thousands of client identity profiles,” Dept. Manatt added.
At the time of her arrest, she had more than 400 identity profiles and 200 credit card numbers for other victims in her possession, according to authorities.
There is no statement on ABEO’s website at the time of this posting.
