Credit card holders warned of major fraud ring in NC

What authorities are describing as a "Major credit card fraud ring" is sweeping across North Carolina, already tallying almost half a million dollars in purchases.

"They are mostly hitting places along the Interstate 40 corridor from Wilmington all the way to Morganton," said Morganton Public Safety Investigator Roger Tate.

Surveillance video was released on Thursday showing several people who used the fraudulent credit cards.

Tate says cards are not being stolen, instead, the card numbers are taken. They believe they were retrieved from legitimate processing centers and new, fraudulent cards, were made overseas.
