PA: Credit Card Scam

Ben Russell reports:

The scammer posed as both a local and federal police officer.

The incidents began last Friday when a man called several restaurants along the Carlisle Pike in Hampden Township. In one instance, he said his name was Officer Miller and that he was doing a fraud investigation.

For the investigation, he needed all of the credit card information from cards used that day.

At least two restaurant employees bought the scam.

So far, police have identified at least 80 compromised accounts, including five that were used to make illegal purchases in New Jersey.
