Crime Stoppers seek identity of credit card fraud suspect
TRI-CITIES, Wash. - The credit car scammer has struck again. Crime Stoppers and police in Kennewick are searching for a man connected to credit card fraud.
Police said the man was allegedly involved in a recent flurry of credit card fraud in the Tri-Cities, Yakima and Hermiston, during the week of June 12.
Officials believe these incidents may also be related to recent activity involving credit card skimming throughout the areas.
The Tri-Cities Police are offering a reward up to $1,000 for any information on this man.
Reports said the man was seen driving a white pickup truck.
Sgt. Randy Maynard with the Kennewick Police said there are a significant number of victims with compromised credit cards. So police are working with financial institutions to determine the amount of loss.
"We want to have people monitor their bank statements and make sure there is nothing unusual in the activity, and if so, contact the local police department," added Richland Police Captain Mike Cobb.
Captain Cobb said if you do notice unusual activity on your credit card, report the fraud to the city police department in which the crime is committed.
Anyone with information on the suspect's identity is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 800-222-8477.
"Any and all information is help, no matter how insignificant," Sgt. Maynard said. "If multiple people call in with small bits and pieces of info, then we can create a bigger picture."
Any information may be left anonymously and could earn you a cash reward.
