The TV personality Sharon explained:
“It’s my Kelly’s birthday today, I went out last night to pick up her gift. I give my credit card and they come back and say, ‘Do you have another credit card? It didn’t go through.’ I say, ‘Just try it again’… still didn’t go through.”
Further, she recalled:
“I hand them Ozzy’s. Then, they come back and go, ‘Do you have another one? It didn’t go through.’”
The mother-of-three went on to narrate:
“Someone rang up charges and maxed out Ozzy’s card and my card. I called through to the credit card company and they go, ‘No, no, no, you’re maxed out, so is Ozzy.’ I’m like, ‘I don’t go to that store, or to that store.'”
Her co-host Eve intervened and asked:
“So wait, it was fraud?”
And Sharon said:
Did Sharon get the money back?
The American-British TV personality revealed that she has made a case against the unknown culprit and the police are investigating. But she has yet not recovered the money back. The couple is still working with the credit card company on the fraudulent charges.
