This is crazy. My friends card got stolen too and the people who did that was using it right away too. But as far as I know they don't know who took it. I am not sure if it is still being investigated. How can anyone just do this? Why can't they just get their own card? Maybe they can't, but that does not give them the right to steal someone elses. My heart goes to the person who owns that card and they find this crazy fat lady.

From the picture in the news article it appears 'Niki" did not need the stolen card at Giant Eagle, she should have gone straight to Weight Watchers with it.

That lady must be awful brave or just plain stupid.She should know she is going to get caught.Cameras are everywhere.Maybe she just dont care.Maybe this will be her way out.We never know why some people do the messed up things they do.Thats why we should write C.I.D.on the back of our credit cards instead of our signature.An all cashiers and clerks should always look at every card that is used.This would have stopped this card bandit at point one.

Carolyn - I agree,@ 5'10" and 265lbs. the Bon-Bons and Snickers bars are not much help. I do hope she is caught quickly and yes I do feel bad for the person that lost the card.

At least she went to Subway. It wouldn't hurt to drop a few pounds. Burn alive on prime time TV when you catch her, ok? THanks.

Stick that trashy, criminal, no class evil thief in jail. Why can't people get a job instead of stealing from good people who work for their things? I feel really bad for the victim.

Idiot - I give her credit for stopping at Subway WITH A STOLEN CREDIT CARD. Do you think she ordered the six inch veggie sub or something more calorie ladden? I hope you get to watch my burning alive on prime time T.V. Will you send me a note or something (you will know my address, if not just send it to HOT, it will get there) letting me know if the ratings are high.

I'm sure she stole it for a good reason..*snicker* Ok, sorry, I couldn't type that with a straight face. Bwaahahaahahaaa!

In all seriousness, I do hope she gets caught and is given more than a slap on the wrist. She knew what she was doing and it's my guess that this isn't the first time she's done something this stupid.

What is it with stopping at Subway with a stolen credit card ? I lost my debit card once and it was used at Subway, Taco Bell (for $24 @ Taco Bell) and at the package store. Card was cancelled before it could be used again-no one was ever caught.

What are we going to do about the people who somehow get your CC number, make a duplicate card and buy $500 worth of liquor, KFC and curtains in California. My card was still physically in my possession. Yea, technology.

Holy crap, that IS scary. I've heard of people ordering stuff online or by phone with just the numbers, but to actually have a fake card for physical purchases? That HAS to be a big operation.

Actually, writing CID or something similar is against the cardholder agreement. Most people won't fuss but some will.

Unfortunately, it's big business and the thieves are rarely caught.

Writing CID on the back of the card offers no legal protection. Cardholders can take the initiative to show a cashier their ID, if a cashier doesn't ask for it. But these days, unless the store has a serious policy of requiring ID checks or the register prompts for ID checks--many cashiers neglect to verify identity.

When I began to review my grandmother's bank records we found someone had an auto withdrawal every month dating back to 2008. They had a traceble service being withdrawn from her account. We did not know these people but with the info the agencies had, the culprit could be identified within a few hours.
If I had not answered the phone when the agency was calling for additional withdrawals, we would have not caught it.
We do not know if the person was charged but I doubt it.

Just happened to us as well. My wife and I had both cards in our possession and somehow the number was used in Texas and Georgia at places like Walgreens and a Waffle House. We need better security on these. So we had to go through getting new cards and waiting and some merchants out there trying to pay their bills and make a profit basically just lost every bit of money on the chargeback. The unknown sleaze is still walking around and I am sure still doing it. And likely there is a local Columbus sleaze who stole our number and then sold it online. Something needs to be done to stop this nonsense.

Imagine that, another african-american stealing something. Look at the size of her, I guess food is the only thing on her mind. Its a shame that you work all week long for a pay check and these B__ T__ ds take it in 5 minutes.
I hope she will be visting Marysville shortly.
People do not do jail time...that is part of the problem. Society just thinks they do.
