Edmond Police are seeking help from the public in identifying two suspects who used cloned credit cards at Allegiance Credit Union in Edmond to make 22 fraudulent withdrawals and in Oklahoma City, said Jenny Wagnon, Edmond Police spokeswoman.
“The total of their withdrawals was $6,740. The victims are from the Blanchard and Newcastle area,” Wagnon said.
Officer Kyle Stoy reported that at about 10 a.m. April 26, he investigated a possible phone fraud and spoke to the male victim on the phone. The victim stated that an unknown suspect used his credit card between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. April 25 to perform two false transactions to obtain money at Allegiance Credit Union at 1925 S. Kelly.
“Each transaction was for $500 each, totaling $1,000,” Stoy said. “(The victim) did not give anyone permission to use his credit card information and his card has been in his possession the entire time.”
His credit card information had also been used to withdraw money illegally in Oklahoma City, according to Edmond Police. A report had already been made to Oklahoma City police.
Two photos of the alleged suspects were documented as evidence by a camera posted at the scene.
