Credit Card Fraud and Identity Theft

Credit card fraud and identity theft are serious federal and state crimes. Blank credit cards, holograms, magnetic strips and stolen account information are sold in bulk on websites that offer virtual one-stop shopping for potential identity theft. Recently, an unknown man who used false credit cards to purchase two gaming systems at a GameStop in Oakland Park and another Plantation store was captured on video and is now being watched by law enforcement. According to Channel 7 News,

"Cameras were rolling as a man in pink shorts was seen using a cloned credit card to buy two PlayStation 4 consoles, one from the GameStop in Oakland Park and another from a Plantation store.

The crook also tried using the card at Toys "R" Us, but it was declined.

If you recognize this man, call Broward County Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS. Remember, you can always remain anonymous, and you may be eligible for a $3,000 reward."
