Credit card fraud snuffed out
A Strongsville man notified police on Feb. 19 at 9:44 p.m. after receiving an automated call from Walmart informing him of pending purchases that he reportedly didn’t authorize.
It appears an unknown number of thieves planned to pick the $1,500 worth of merchandise from Walmart locations in California and Texas, according to the police report.
Walmart canceled the man’s credit card and blocked the purchases.
