VALPARAISO | Valparaiso and Porter County police are alerting the public
that dozens of people's debit/credit cards numbers have been compromised.
Police said at least 36 people have reported that their numbers have been
used fraudulently in Georgia, Florida and other states. The loss is several
Police are advising people to regularly review their accounts online, if
possible, and to report fraudulent activity immediately.
Valparaiso Detective Lt. John Ross said the victims did not lose possession
of their cards, but their card numbers were obtained. He said it is unknown
how criminals have obtained people's card numbers, but because the cards
originate from several different banks, it doesn't appear initially that a
single bank has had a security breach.
Ross said police and bank officials are trying to determine if the dozens of
victims used a common retailer that might be the source of the criminal
activity. The crime seems to have originated in Valparaiso, where police
have taken at least 30 fraud reports in the past month. Porter County police
said they have taken about six fraud reports in about a week.
Anyone who becomes the victim of debit/credit card fraud is advised to
contact the card issuer and police. The investigation continues.
