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.

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

They just need your input for a positive identification.
