Fake Credit Card


((ASHLEY)) A RARE FIND DURING A CAR SEARCH IN BENTON NOW HAS THE SECRET SERVICE INVOLVED. ALONG WITH PRINTERS AND COUNTERFEIT CASH áá THEY FOUND FAKE CREDIT CARDS. ((BOB)) REBECCA JEFFREY SPOKE TO POLICE ABOUT THE DISCOVERY… AND REBECCA HOW DOES A FAKE CREDIT CARD WORK? ((REBECCA)) BOB AND ASHLEY áá WE’VE HEARD OF STOLEN CREDIT AND DEBIT CARDS BUT THIS IS A LITTLE DIFFERENT. SOMEHOW THE CRIMINAL GETS AHOLD OF A PERSON’S CREDIT CARD INFORMATION AND THEN PROGRAMS IT INTO THE MAGNETIC STRIP. THAT WAY ALL THEY HAVE TO DO IS SWIPE. “People are coming in here to buy their next meal.” THIS HOMEGROWN GROCERY STORE IN BENTON IS AS WHOLESOME AS ITS PRODUCE. “Okra, and tomatoes and watermelon…” THEIR fruits and vegetables MAY BE SIMPLE, BUT GENERAL MANAGER COURTNEY YOUNG SAYS THEIR SECURITY IS NOT. “To be able to survive, you have to do all the checks.” ESPECIALLY AFTER BENTON POLICE TRACKED DOWN SHANE OWENS WHO TOOK THEM ON A HIGH SPEED CHASE… HE WAS LATER FOUND IN THE TINSELTOWN MOVIE THEATER PARKING LOT. HIS CADILLAC WAS FILLED WITH PRINTERS, SPECIAL PAPER, COUNTERFEIT CASH, AND ELECTRONICS ALL HIDDEN WITHIN DIFFERENT PARTS OF THE CAR. BUT WHAT STOOD OUT áá WERE NUMEROUS CARDS WITH MAGNETIC STRIPS AND SOME WITH THE SUSPECTS NAME ON THEM. “That’s actually something we don’t see very often.” CAPTAIN KEVIN RUSSELL WITH BENTON POLICE SAYS IN THESE CASES, THE CRIMINALS CAN GET PEOPLE’S CREDIT CARD INFORMATION BY SCAMMING THEM OVER THE PHONE áá OR THROUGH CREDIT CARD SKIMMERS AT GAS STATIONS. “Then they can use that data and put in onto the credit cards that they’re forging.” BUT SO FAR, HE SAYS THE CARDS WITH A CHIP HAVEN’T BEEN HACKED. “You always have to try to stay at least a step or two ahead of the criminals.” AND FOR SMALL BUSINESSES WHERE EVERy DOLLAR COUNTS… “Even though you trust 90 percent of the people that are coming into your store…” YOUNG ISN’T TAKING ANY CHANCES. “We’re always on the lookout.” ((REBECCA)) TO MAKE SURE YOUR INFORMATION ISN’T STOLEN IN THIS WAY… NEVER GIVE OUT YOUR CREDIT CARD NUMBER TO SOMEONE OVER THE PHONE WHO YOU DIDN’T CALL DIRECTLY. DOUBLE CHECK THE CREDIT CARD DEVICES OUTSIDE GAS STATION PUMPS FOR SKIMMERS. AND ALWAYS CHECK YOUR YOUR BANK AND CREDIT CARD ACCOUNTS REGULARLY. BACK TO YOU.
