SOUTH PLAINFIELD, NJ—Police records show that a Caldwell woman was arrested on July 6 by agents with the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office (MCPO).
Edyta Moczarska, age 42, has been charged in South Plainfield Municipal Court with a slew of financial crimes related to an allegedly years-long credit card fraud scheme.
Based on the details in the complaint, the MCPO is accusing the Caldwell resident of altering credit card statements to conceal more than a half-million dollars in “unauthorized charges.”
The alleged crimes took place between approximately October 26, 2015 and February 6, 2017, according to the complaint.
In addition to first-degree financial facilitation, there were other charges filed against Moczarska including illegal investment, conspiracy, theft by deception and forgery.
However, the identity of the individual Moczarska allegedly conspired with has not been made public. That individual’s name was redacted from the complaint provided to New Brunswick Today.
Within South Plainfield, Moczarska “did conspire with another person or persons to commit theft by deception in the second-degree with the purpose of promoting or facilitating the commission of such crime by agreeing with [redacted] that defendant would aid him in the planning or commission of such crime,” reads one part of the complaint.
The complaint, signed by MCPO agent Jonathan Berman accuses Moczarska of conspiring with the mystery man to commit financial facilitation, in violation of N.J.S.A. 2C:21-25.
She is also charged with theft of over $500,000 through unauthorized charges to American Express and Chase credit cards in violation of N.J.S 2C:5-2A (1).
She is also facing two fourth-degree forgery charges for “altering or changing any writing belonging to [American Express and Chase] without their authorization.”
