Metro Credit Card Fraud Warning

OKLAHOMA CITY -

Early Sunday, I was awakened by a Capital One credit card fraud agent on the East Coast. She told me they'd detected unusual activity.

A quick check online showed several purchases were made in the Oklahoma City area Saturday, amounting to $1,200. The problem was, I was on-call. I never left my house.

But there they were: $541.86 at Guitar Center, $378 at Bed Bath and Beyond and $105 at Walmart. I think I'm going to be sick.

Obviously, Capital One calling me early Sunday was a really good thing. But the Oklahoma Attorney General's Office said of equal importance is to file a police report.

Capital One said I'm off the hook financially for this little mess. It happens more than you want to know and time will tell whether or not karma catches up to the little criminal responsible. They paid $55 for gas at a Love's Travel Stop.

“Then they have a copy of your card. There are ways criminals can reproduce cards. But I'm not sure, that just seems really unusual,” said Julie Bays with the Attorney General's Office.

Tuesday, I will be filing a formal police report with Oklahoma City police. And there's probably some surveillance video from one of these places of business we talked about. Stay tuned.
