An Ohio man is accused of lying about the size of a business credit card after he claimed it was $1,000.
In court papers, the prosecutor in the case said that the business owner used the credit card as a “cursory business” that he needed to make the payments on his mortgage and other debts.
The charges stem from a 2011 arrest, which was made after the owner received a phone call from a bank, according to the prosecutor.
The owner told police that he paid off some debts, including an unpaid student loan and a bill for two years of medical treatment.
He said he was also trying to pay off the credit cards of other customers and would not reveal his identity.
When the owner was arrested, he told police he was using the creditcard to make payments on some debts but was not disclosing that fact to the bank.
The business owner said that when he saw that he had an account on the card, he was not going to give it to anyone else.
The prosecutor said that after he filed the charges against the business, he called the bank and was told that the credit was outstanding and that they could not process the charge.
The attorney general’s office told ABC News it is reviewing the case and is reviewing how it was handled.
