Man allegedly took out $45G fraudulent loan to pay Texas dental office for new teeth
Authorities are on the hunt for a man who allegedly took out a $45,000 fraudulent loan to pay for dental work in Texas.
The man — whose name wasn’t released — showed up for a consultation at Smile Texas where he scheduled to have surgery for new expensive dentures on Nov. 30, KHOU reported.
The molds were made, and workers were scheduled — duties that cost $9,800 — for the surgery the suspect never showed up for, the dental office said.
After trying to reach the suspect by phone, another man called the office and informed a staff member his information was used to open a fraudulent line of credit, according to KHOU.
Smile Texas also provided the Sugar Land Police Department with a photo taken of the suspect during his first consultation.
The man faces charges of fraudulent use of identifying information and tampering with a government document.
