Tiffin Police search for credit card fraud suspect

TIFFIN, OH (Toledo News Now) -

Tiffin Police are investigating several cases of credit card fraud, including eight within the city and several others nearby.

"We started getting numerous complaints about cards being compromised and fraudulent purchases on them," explained Detective Sgt. Jason Windsor.

The calls started coming in to the department last Monday. Det. Windsor said the stolen card numbers are being used across several states.

"Right now, some people have lost $100 out of their checking account, some people have lost over $1,000," he said. "The banks are working with them to try to recover their funds."

Credit card fraud can have a long-term affect on victims. Windsor said many victims don't feel comfortable using debit or credit cards again.

But Tiffin Police are investigating the rash of crime and have a strong message for whoever is behind it.

"We're going to catch him," Windsor said. "We're hoping we will get some good leads behind this and track down what started this and who is involved."
