Suspect Indicted in International Fraud Ring

A Carlsbad (Texas) man has been indicted for playing a part in a large credit card fraud ring. According to court documents, on September 4, 2019, deputies with the Tom Green County Sheriff’s Office received a case from the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office in Florida regarding a possible fraud ring that involved a resident in Tom Green County.

On September 12, 2019, deputies went to meet David Harvell, 68, on the 11700 block of Coleman st. in Carlsbad. During the initial interview, Harvell admitted to using a debit card that was not his and that when it stopped working he called the bank for a replacement.

They then searched his home where they found a black notebook containing a number of credit card, debit card, and social security numbers. When asked about what he did with the cards, Harvell admitted to receiving payment for buying and shipping items to Ghana, Malaysia, and Florida.
