They’re scammers, thieves and cons – trying to use whatever illegal measures they can to steal people’s money – and all their personal information. Trish Routte with Crime Stoppers has the stories of three fraud cases in which detectives need your help tracking down the perpetrators.
ID sought of woman racking up charges on someone else’s card
Southwest FloridaCrime Stoppers is asking for the public’s help identifying a woman who used a stolen credit card in Punta Gorda to rack up charges within hours of the card being stolen. And although the crime occurred months ago, detectives think the suspect could still be targeting others.
Punta Gorda Police detectives say the victim parked her Jeep in the parking lot of 615 Cross Street, Punta Gorda, between 2 and 3 p.m. last July.
