DeKalb Police receive over 30 credit card fraud complaints

By Northern Star Staff

Last week, the DeKalb Police Department received over 30 complaints of Visa credit card fraud.

DeKalb Police Lt. Gary Spangler said he wasn’t sure if Visa getting compromised was a wide-spread problem. However, Spangler said many people in the area had their card information used in other states.

These cases are still in the “on-going investigation” phase, Spangler said, but none of the victims have suffered any financial loss.

To avoid failing victim to credit card fraud, always monitor financial statements and watch for suspicious transactions, Spangler said.
