OREGON, OH (Toledo News Now) -
The Oregon Police Department needs the public's help identifying a man they say stole a credit card on Christmas Eve to make purchases around northwest Ohio, but the way he did it may surprise you.
Police say there have been transactions in the Oregon and Toledo area totaling nearly $650. The victim told police he believes his card was stolen on the holiday -- but his card is still in his wallet.
Police are still trying to figure out how the victim's card information was stolen, but believe it was obtained by card skimming, which is a form of making a copy of a credit card.
There are some things you can do to prevent this from happening to you:
"When someone else is using your credit card to pay a bill, keep an eye on that person with the card and if you can, pay cash," said Det. Michael Blazevich with the OPD.
Police say the thief was driving a red pickup truck at the time.
An investigation is ongoing. Anyone with more information can contact Det. Blazevich at 419-698-7060.
