A Kennewick man had his scam blow up in his face!

59-year-old Franklin Ivory is in custody after attempting to be compensated for $1,800 in charges to his bank account he said were due to identity theft.

Ivory met with Kennewick police last week after filing a fraud complaint with GESA Credit Union.

The charges he said were fraudulent were for hotel rooms and other items. He signed a sworn affidavit saying he did not commit the overdrafts.

However, during the investigation, police found Ivory had an outstanding arrest warrant!

The fraud investigation revealed it was Ivory who actually committed the overdrafts on his account. Now he’s facing felony fraud charges.
