MOUNT VERNON, NY — April 30, 2019 — The Yonkers Tribune today learned that Fraida Hickson on April 24, 2019 pled guilty to one count of credit card fraud before Judge Kenneth M. Karas. She admitted creating and using another person’s name to pay for plastic surgery.
The credit card fraud became evident back in 2017 to a woman who noticed that her credit score had dropped precipitously due to an unpaid balance of $20,465. The charges accrued showed charges to a New York City plastic surgeon. The woman, unidentified in court papers, informs that she had never applied for a CareCredit card that was applied for through Synchrony Bank, and online bank.
Hickson will be sentenced on September 19th.
In the meanwhile, Hickson continues to be employed by the City of Mount Vernon and the issue is why?
