Shannade Clermont allegedly racked up $20K on a dead man's credit card after a prostitution date.
Shannade Clermont is reportedly facing charges of wire fraud, device fraud and aggravated identity theft after allegedly stealing the debit card of a deceased man following a prostitution date, TheBlast reports.
Officials say that in 2017, Shannade Clermont lifted the debit card information “of a man she had visited for a prostitution date and who was found dead in his apartment the next morning from a drug overdose.”
The anonymous man died from an overdose of a cocaine and fentanyl. Shannade was linked to the man after investigators took his iPhone, his wallet and a loose condom from his bed after he was found dead. According to the investigators, the doorman claimed Shannade said that her name was "Audrey" and was seen a few hours before his body was found.
The text messages from the deceased man's phone revealed that Shannade agreed to have a date with the man for $400. However, it isn't clear whether she knew the man was dead before allegedly lifting his debit card.
Officials claim Shannade used the dead man's card to pay her rent, phone bills, cop plane tickets and online purchases “of thousands of dollars of clothing and other merchandise.”
On Clermont's charges, U.S. Attorney Geoffrey Berman said, "As alleged, Shannade Clermont, a former cast member of the “Bad Girls Club,” lived up to her reality series reputation.” He added, “Clermont’s new reality is federal prosecution for her alleged nefarious conduct.”
