They were living the high life and traveling the world, a duo of jet-setters who allegedly financed their fun on credit cards of unsuspecting neighbors and identity theft victims. But today, the suspected con artists are lying low as they await their May 12 preliminary hearing in Philadelphia.
Jocelyn Kirsch, 22, works at a California Starbucks shop in California, taking orders and handling credit card transactions while living with her mother and stepfather about 30 miles from San Francisco, the Philadelphia Daily News reported Tuesday.
Also living with parents in Everett, Wash., is Edward Kyle Anderton, 25, the other half of the couple. The two have since broken up.
Their alleged crimes, a modern-day “Bonnie and Clyde” story, range from conspiracy to identity theft. The case gained notoriety in December as photos of their lavish lifestyle and world travels surfaced.
Their fraud scheme, estimated at $100,000 this year alone, paid for jaunts to Paris, London and Hawaii and other luxury perks, including Kirsch's stop at a tony salon for $1,700 worth of hair extensions, police said.
