Here is what is happening:
The two women are fraudulently using other people credit card numbers to make purchases at Safeway stores and other retail stores here on Oahu. It is believed that they are obtaining the credit card numbers, stamping fake cards with stolen numbers and trying to make large purchases. Because the magnetic strip doesn't work on a fake credit card, they are asking the clerks at retail stores to type in the numbers manually.
WHAT CAN YOU DO TO HELP? Please check your credit card purchases this week to ensure all your purchases were made by you. Don't wait for your statement. Look at the two photos of the women seen using fraudulent credit cards to make purchases and if you know them, call CRIME STOPPERS or the HPD Criminal Investigation department at 723-3609.
