Del. State Police Seek Help IDing Credit Card Fraud Suspects

Posted: Updated:
LEWES, Del. -

The Delaware State Police is asking for the public's assistance in attempting to identify two male subjects who are using fraudulent credit cards to purchase money cards at local supermarkets.

Within the last month, according to police, two subjects are alleged to be manufacturing credit cards over the computer by using information from previously skimmed or stolen credit cards.

According to investigators, the suspects take these fraudulent cards to local supermarkets in the Lewes and Long Neck areas of Delaware and purchase legitimate money cards. To prevent cashiers from physically checking the fake cards, the suspects use the counter card reader. The purchases normally amount to as much as $400.00, say investigators.

The victims, whose information is attached to the fake ones, are then contacted by their credit card companies inquiring into the purchases and alerting them to the discrepancies. These cards are then deactivated.

If anyone has any information on these incidents or the suspects, they are asked to contact Sgt. Charles Groce at 302-856-5850 ext. 207.
