Mililani woman arrested for allegedly shopping with stolen card

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 08:46 a.m. HST, Jun 26, 2013

A 30-year-old Mililani woman is in custody after she allegedly made several purchases from a Walgreens store in Wahiawa with a debit card stolen from a soldier.

Police said the 27-year-old victim checked his debit card account after realizing he had lost it and his military identification card. After finding three unauthorized purchases, the victim went to the Wahiawa store and called police.

A cashier identified the woman who made the purchases. Police said the suspect also had the soldier’s identification card. She was arrested Tuesday on suspicion of credit card fraud.

OK SO......you have card...and the card owner's ID. so debit cards do not need (and I DONT KNOW WHY NOT!) for you to produce your ID. THIS IS THE VERY REASON NO MATTER WHAT, YOU ASK FOR ID!!.. SO...if in fact the person showed the ID that goes with the card, WHY DID THE CLERK NOT ACTUALLY OPEN HER EYES AND LOOK AT THE PIC? this is indeed a winner of the BABOOZE award!!!!!

When you use your debit card, you have to enter your pin. Depending on your bank, the card can be used as a debit or credit and the cashier will ask your preference. If credit, then no pin is required;however, an id will probably be required.

Actually, now that I think about it, RARELY am I ever asked to show my I.D. whenever I use my debit card even if I use it as a credit. I guess this is why they say it's safer to use a major credit card verses a debit card. Major credit card companies wouldn't make you pay for fraudulent charges. That's something I'll think about in this ever increasing world of thieves and liars.
