Credit Card Fraud Hits Home


100's of people in the Bend area are reporting false charges on their cards, and it’s a case that Bend Police say could involve organized crime. 1110 KBND's Lori Raab spoke with one of the victims. "You are shocked you see it and hear about it in the news; that's not going to happen to me!” Our own Donna James, with sister station County 99.7- The Mountain is one of the 200 or so victims. She found out when she went to use her card and it was declined; even though she had plenty of money in her account.  So she called the bank: “And from there, they told me charges were put on my account from as far away as New York and Jamaica.” James says she gave the [police] detective her bank statements for the past 3 months. They are pouring over all those statements to try and isolate a connection. Bend Police say the victims most likely visited the same ATM or retail place in the Bend area.
