A $400,000 Bloomingdale’s credit card scam was an inside job, prosecutors said Wednesday.
Ivy Lian, 25, worked the Christian Dior counter at the department store where there were at least 40 big buck purchases using stolen credit card information, the Manhattan District Attorney’s office said.
Co-defendant Yi Wu, 22, made numerous pricey purchases at Lian’s kiosk, including Dior handbags and wallets, using numbers supplied by a third defendant, Shih Tan, 27, between March 28 and June 9 at the Third Ave. flagship store and the SoHo outpost, prosecutors said.
Lian and Wu were arraigned in Manhattan Supreme Court on Wednesday. Tan was ordered held without bail but will be back in court on Thursday for a bail hearing and arraignment. Tan and Wu are also charged with possession of Ketamine, officials said.
