BLOOMINGTON, IN – 51-year-old Dennis Faulkner, the office manager at Faulkner Chiropractic and Acupuncture in Bloomington was arrested after police say he was wiring money from erroneous credit cards lines made in clients’ names. According to Bloomington Detective Christopher, Faulkner turned himself into police last week. According to police the business has a policy in place where a client may establish a line of credit where sessions could be charged. The activity never shows on the client’s statements and no interest would accumulate as long as clients made the minimum payment. Police say Faulkner allegedly would create the fake accounts, rake in the cash and make the minimum payment. Police say Faulkner established a total of 48 credit lines, accumulating to $210,800 and made $43,000 in payments. At the time of the arrest, he had an outstanding balance of more than $167,000.
When questioned by police, Faulkner said his wife, the chiropractor of the practice, had no knowledge of the operation He also said the reason he began the operation was to supplement the cash flow of the business because of personal and financial difficulties. An anonymous caller tipped off the investigation back in early April after the credit company Care Credit contacted Bloomington police.
