Local police say the number of victims in a credit card and debit card fraud case now tops 400. The lead detective on the case told KBND news that as of Friday afternoon, they had tallied 437 victims in Deschutes County; mostly in the Bend area. Tony Green with the Department of Justice says people in the Bend area who use plastic need to constantly monitor bank and credit card accounts: “Residents in the area should be checking their credit card bills on-line they should not waiting for the bill to show up. They should really scour it carefully. That's good advice generally, but its particularly important given what's going on in Deschutes County.” Bend Police detectives say it points to organized crime, where numbers are stolen and then physical cards are made then sold to others. The charges continue to come in from various states; even countries as far away as France.
