Shannade Clermont, the Bad Girl’s Club alum, found herself arrested by the police for identity theft. According to a statement released by the US Attorney’s Office For The Southern District of New York on the 11th of July, Wednesday, the 24-year-old reality star faces charges of access device fraud, aggravated identity theft, and wire fraud.
Reportedly, Ms. Clermont used the anonymous man’s credit cards after she met up with him for a “prostitution date,” in January 2017. The following morning, the police found his dead body, presumably due to a drug overdose, but they didn’t know who he was with at the time of his death.
While she was in his apartment, she stole his credit cards and made $20,000 worth of fraudulent purchases on two of his cards in the succeeding days.
The US Attorney’s Office states that the woman used the money to pay her telephone bills, her rent, as well as flights, clothing, and other random items online.
The reality star also created a fake email account in his name, then used it to create a Western Union account, and then wire transferred $1,000 to herself. Geoffrey S. Berman said in his statement that Ms. Clermont lived up to her reputation as a “Bad Girl” in Bad Girl’s Club.
The prosecutor said in his official statement before the court that she stole credit card information from a deadman and used it to purchase thousands of dollars worth of merchandise under fraudulent pretenses.
The case is particularly malicious because rather than reporting that he had died to authorities, she capitalized on his death. The Associated Press claims Ms. Clermont was arrested on Wednesday and then was released on $100,000 bail.
Shannade and her sister, Shannon, appeared in the 14th season of the reality series, which aired three years ago in 2015, and they also modeled for Kanye West’s Yeezy and were featured in several music videos. Unfortunately, it looks like her days as a reality and music video star are over.
