Report: GSU student victim of fraud
Online debit transactions traced; man faces three charges
Kenton Lawrence Perkins
A man who reportedly used a debit card that wasn't his to make online purchases ended up behind bars after a Bulloch County Sheriff's investigation, said Bulloch County Sheriff Lynn Anderson. A Georgia Southern University student filed a report Saturday, claiming she lost her debit card and learned it had been used by a man later identified as Kenton Lawrence Perkins, 21, Fayetteville, to make online purchases, he said. "Working with the bank which issued the card, and the online merchant where the purchase had been made, deputies obtained information leading to an apartment at University Village near GSU," he said.
