Couple wanted in connection to credit card fraud
Paducah police need the public’s help identifying a couple who acquired a woman’s credit card number by fraud and charged items to it.
An Ohio woman told police she was staying at a Paducah hotel when someone claiming to be a hotel desk clerk called her. The caller said there was a problem with her credit card and asked her to provide the number again.
A few minutes later the woman contacted the hotel front desk and learned that the call had been fake. She immediately called her credit card company and found an online purchase had already been charged to it.
Police were able to obtain pictures of the suspects trying to pick up the online purchase at a store.
Anyone who knows the identity of those pictured is asked to call the Paducah Police Department at (270) 444-8550 or Crime Stoppers at (270) 443-TELL.
