Breckenridge police ask credit-card fraud victims to come forward

The Breckenridge Police Department is asking residents who have been victims of credit-card fraud to come forward to help with an investigation into a string of fraud cases police and the FBI say originated in Breckenridge.

Authorities are investigating 17 cases which may involve illegal intrusion through a software program, but believe there are more victims who have not gone to the police, according to a department statement released Thursday.

“The FBI has asked us to try and seek out any additional victims in this string of credit card frauds,” Breckenridge police chief Rick Holman stated in the release. “The more we can learn about where and when this is happening, the greater our chances of being able to pinpoint the source.”

Individuals in Breckenridge who have had fraudulent purchases made on their credit card are asked to contact Breckenridge Police Dispatch at 668-8600 to report it.
