MADISON, AL (WAFF) -

Everybody likes a card trick, right? 

Except when the card you're talking about is your debit card and the trick is costing you a whole lot of money. We have more on a "criminal card trick" we're seeing more often here in the Tennessee Valley.

The crook playing this card trick is wearing the gray pants and a multi-colored striped hoodie you see in security camera footage from the Walmart on Highway 20 in Madison Oct. 14. According to police, this guy is using a debit card to buy five $200 gift cards.

But the catch is, the victim still had her debit card. 

Police say this crook was able to get his hands on her numbers from that card and use them to steal from her.

The victim didn't know anything was wrong until her financial institution notified her that her account had been compromised. 

Does he look familiar to you? 

If so, his fraudulent $1,000 purchase can net you $1,000 in honestly-earned cash by way of reward funds.
