Idaho Police Find Link in Credit Fraud Outbreak

April 4, 2012

Police in the north-central Idaho town of Orofino say a rash of credit card fraud that has affected nearly 300 people originated at a local grocery store.

The police department says the owners of the Glenwood IGA store have been cooperating with investigators to determine just how the fraud occurred. No charges have been filed in the case.

Police have been investigating reports of fraud since February. In many cases, accounts were hit with small charges to see if they were active before larger purchases were attempted.

The grocery store owners are having their own credit card company check the store’s system to see if any malicious software has been installed on the store’s terminals.
