IN: Credit card scam hits local eatery

A restaurant in Richmond, Indiana seems to have fallen for a ruse that has resulted in fraudulent charges on their customers’ credit and debit cards. Robert Sullivan reports:

A local restaurant and several of its customers have been victimized by a credit card fraud scam, Richmond Police Department officials said.

Fifteen individuals who ate at Jade House Restaurant at 4710 National Road E. since the beginning of March and used their credit card to pay for their meal had information stolen by someone posing to the restaurant as an employee of its credit card service, RPD said.

“At this point, it looks like Jade House is as much a victim as anybody,” said RPD Capt. Jim Branum. “They have a company they use for their credit card service, and somebody posing as the company called and asked for information saying that there was a problem with their system. As a result, some information was given out which compromised the cards.
