Woman arrested in Wayland for credit card fraud

WAYLAND - A Sacramento woman arrested last Friday for trying to get an illegal cash advance on a credit card skipped her Framingham District Court arraignment on Tuesday.

Judge Paul Healy Jr. issued a warrant for Marjorie Madison’s arrest.

Madison, 35, was arrested Friday at 1:44 p.m. at the Bank of America on Boston Post Road. Bank employees called the police because a woman, later identified as Madison, tried to get money on a credit card that had been flagged, Wayland Police Detective Ruth Backman said in a report filed in Framingham District Court.

Bank employees said a woman matching Madison’s description had been to a Bank of America in Belmont earlier in the week and used her credit card to get a $5,000 cash advance, but was given $6,000 by mistake.

The bank told her it wanted the $1,000 back and she "reached into her purse and took out $6,000 in cash," according to the report.

When questioned at the Belmont bank, Madison gave bank officials a California license. She said she was in Massachusetts for her grandfather’s funeral, Backman wrote.

When questioned in Wayland, Madison said she had paid cash on the credit card so she could get cash advances, but later admitted she knew she was not allowed to get money.

She also changed the reason she was in the state.

"She said her reason for coming to Massachusetts was that she had a sugar daddy who gave her $20,000 for her and a friend to come out and visit him," Backman wrote.

Madison, who is four months pregnant, was charged with improper use of a credit card, attempting to commit a crime and receiving stolen property.

She posted $1,500 bail at the station on Friday and was scheduled to be arraigned on Tuesday.

The Wayland arrest was not the first for Madison. According to Framingham District Court records, Madison served time in a California prison on similar charges.
