Chippewa Falls (WQOW) – A Chippewa Falls woman was charged Tuesday with defrauding her own mother, aunt, and uncle out of thousands of dollars.
Jennifer Eyerly is accused of applying for credit cards in her mother’s name, and running up over $8,000 in charges.
Police say she also told her aunt and uncle she worked at a senior living facility, and had secured jobs for them at the facility. They say she requested their banking information and social security numbers as part of their job applications.
When they quit their jobs and moved from Madison to Chippewa Falls, they learned she didn’t work at the facility, and there were no jobs. They estimated they were out $8,000-$10,000 in lost wages and moving expenses.
Eyerly is charged with five felonies, including identity theft and forgery.
