Good job, Home Depot. I notice they ask for ID when using a credit card no matter the amount when I charge. A lot of stores nowadays, don't ask for ID unless the charge is over $25 or $50. That's how these crooks get away. They charge only a small amount. If all stores asked for ID, more crooks will get caught, or they won't use the cards.

He had another card, meaning a lot more stashed away, or peddled them away or purchased them from some other crooks. These are however small potatoes, the biggies are the hackers like the Neiman Marcus and Target heist of credit customers' personal info. The hackers will sell them to crooks who will proceed to bleed bank accounts and other investments.
