SUNRISE, Fla. – A woman is facing fraud charges after she used a fake ID to access a man's account at the Zale's jewelry store at the Sawgrass Mills mall, police said.

Juanita Robinson-Tosca, 49, was arrested Monday on charges of possession of a fake driver's license, fraud by impersonation and fraud by using an ID without the victim's consent.

According to an arrest report, Robinson-Tosca told a store employee that she was an authorized user on a man's account and provided them with his Social Security number and a fake driver's license.

Police said the employee became suspicious and notified authorities.

The responding officer said Robinson-Tosca handed her a driver's license bearing the name Debra Jacoby.

Officer Delia Negron said she "observed that it had a different font size and lacked some security features."

Negron checked the license in the police database and discovered a photograph that was not Robinson-Tosca.

Police said the victim, whose line of credit Robinson-Tosca tried to gain access to, lives in California and told detectives that he did not give anyone permission to use his line of credit.

Seminole police contacted Jacoby, who said she did not give the suspect permission to use her identity. Jacoby also said Robinson-Tosca had been arrested in Aventura last month for using her information.

Robinson-Tosca remains at the main Broward County jail.
