HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

Can you imagine receiving a phone call that a crook had used your credit card to rack up thousands of dollars worth of charges? Then imagine looking into your wallet and seeing your card is still there.

Police say a woman seen on surveillance video stole the credit card information from her victim.

In other words, she got those all-important account numbers and made her own card. It was a fake card, a cloned card.

It's something we're seeing more and more often these days.

Police say the victim is from Florence but the crook used the cloned card at several Walmarts in the Huntsville area to rack up charges of almost $5,000.

Police investigators say they believe they know who this crook is.

They just need your input for a positive identification.

So your tip could slam the door on her, and it would very much be worth your while. How would you like a reward of up to $1,000?
