An Oswego man is accused of filing a false police report after claiming he was the victim of credit card fraud, police said.

Ryan Alexander, 28, of the 5000 block of Route 71, filed a report on Aug. 26, 2013, claiming that a credit card statement contained in excess of $900 in fraudulent charges.

"He was saying the balance wasn't his," Deputy Bryan Harl said. But police said an investigation revealed that Alexander's claim was false. 

Alexander was arrested on Jan. 31 and charged with filing a false police report, a Class 4 felony. He was released after posting $500 bail, according to police.

Um excuse me jeff hoch, I am going to politely ask you to apologize to my brother for something you know nothing about. It was a mistake made by a company he did not commit fraud. First of all he doesn't live here so you might want to get your facts straight and before you go playing God and judging people(falsely I mind you) you might want to check yourself or would you like me to comment and let you know what all the neighbors refer to you as!

Well sometimes the news makes mistakes. You should think before you speak and judge others. People have feelings and are going through enough being humiliated and wrongly accused. How would you feel.

Have you sent a complaint to the Patch if this is incorrect. Sorry again for the mistake!
Mandy Null February 04, 2014 at 10:29 PM
Thank you Jeff Hoch. Yes I am contacting them tomorrow.
