    FL - Michigan Dentist facing fraud charges

    One of the stupidest, greediest things I have seen lately. Shame on this man!!! Millionaire dentist stealing from a Navy Vet that is living pay check to pay check. According to this article Ludwig was into town for his son's baseball tournament. How embarrassing this must be for that son.

    DAVENPORT - A Michigan dentist is in trouble with the law after he allegedly made purchases with a credit card that wasn't his.

    According to a Polk County Sheriff's Office report, Richard Lewis Ludwig was arrested Saturday night on four fraud-related charges.

    Investigators say the victim in the case, 32-year-old Harrun Majeed of Davenport, made a purchase at a Publix in Davenport at approximately 7:30 p.m.

    As he walked back to his vehicle, Majeed unknowingly dropped his Naval Federal Credit Union Visa card. When he returned home and realized he didn't have the credit card, he immediately contacted his financial institution to deactivate the card.

    While he was on the phone, a company representative told him a purchase had just been made at a pizza parlor in the same shopping center as the Publix where Majeed lost the card.

    At the time of his arrest, Ludwig had $250 in cash in his wallet.

    Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd was appalled by Ludwig's actions.

    "I've been in law enforcement for a long time, but this one takes the cake," Judd said of the crime. "This is the epitome of arrogance. Dr. Ludwig appears to be an intelligent, successful person who could have bought pizza for everyone in Davenport, but instead, he risked his career to steal from a military veteran."

    Just found the Polk County official news release on this. Much the same as the above article with a few more details and copy of the receipt. Strange it appears the dentist signed his own name on the charge slip.
