New York (ANI): Rock musician Courtney Love has hired a private detective once again after being sued by American Express for the 350,000 dollars fraudsters billed on her card. Even as AmEx chiefs claimed that the rocker ran up a huge bill on her Gold card and refused to pay it off, Love"s lawyer insisted that his client has been battling the charges for months because she didn't spend the money.
But Love has hired private investigator John J. Nazarian to trace the origins of the fraud, and compile a case for the Los Angeles Police Department. “She"s not a person without means. We're ready to go to the LAPD because someone gained access to her Social Security number and applied for cards in her name," the New York Post quoted Nazarian as saying.
“Its astounding AmEx didn't question the charges beforehand," he added.
