Caught on camera: 2 credit card thieves shopping at Dillard's

TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -

Toledo Police are looking for two women caught on camera financing their shopping spree with someone else's money.

The suspects used stolen credit card information – but the victim still has her card. Police believe they skimmed the credit card numbers off the card and transferred the information to another card with a magnetic strip. They say people will use devices called wedges, which are small enough to fit in the palm of their hand, to swipe your credit card when you're paying for a legitimate transaction. That's why police say it's important to keep your card in sight as much as possible.

"If they are doing this to one person's credit card, they are doing it for many people's credit cards," said Sgt. Joe Heffernan. "Sometimes it takes a little bit of time to catch up with this type of crime. You don't always notice it right away, and sometimes it's not until a month later when you get your statement."

The women were caught on a Dillard's security camera, shopping with the stolen card information.

Police would like to get these suspects off the streets as quickly as possible before they spend anyone else's hard-earned money. If you have any information that can help, call Crimestopper at 419-255-1111.
