A traveling ring of bandits is believed responsible for more than $70,000 in debit card fraud that claimed victims in Shreveport-Bossier, New Orleans, and Dallas, said Sheriff Steve Prator.
Fraud investigators from a local bank recently advised the Sheriff’s Office that debit cards belonging to multiple bank customers had been compromised. The customers received text messages stating their cards had been locked and they needed to call to have the cards unlocked. Once the customers called the number they were asked for their PIN. When they provide their PIN, money was withdrawn from their accounts.
Sheriff’s Detective Clarissa Harris said in just one week, the offenders compromised more than 50 debit cards and stole more than $70,000.
The Sheriff’s Office obtained these photos of persons who may have information about this case.
Anyone who can provide information or help locate these persons of interest is asked to contact Det. Harris at 318-681-0700 or Caddo-Shreveport Crime Stoppers at 318-673-7373.
