HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

How's this for a card trick?

A man had his credit card stolen with charges racked up to his account, but he still had the card in his wallet.

How did that happen?

Here's the story - and a golden opportunity for a wad of cash to magically appear in your pocket in this week's Huntsville Area Crime Stoppers.

A woman dressed in all black with long hair is seen on surveillance video buying an I-pad worth over $500 at the Walmart on University Drive May 28. 

Police say she's using a stolen credit card...sort of.

The catch here is the victim still had his credit card in his wallet. 

According to police, the thief was using a card that been copied.

Huntsville police tell us that copied card was used at several locations in the area. 

And the victim obviously had no idea until the bank called about the charges. 

But the good news here is we do have an outstanding shot of this anything but upstanding person. 

In fact, I'm willing to bet the up-to $1,000 reward that one photo is all you'll need to identify her. 

It doesn't get much better than this.

If you know her, make the anonymous call to 256-53-Crime. 

Or text or e-mail your anonymous tips. 

To see how, go to our website at waff.com, click Crime Stoppers, then the Huntsville Area Crime Stoppers link. 

And I'd do it quickly - because this should be easy money.
