Detectives from the King County Sheriff’s Department are turning to the public in the hopes of identifying this pair of likely mail thieves who used a stolen debit card in several area cities:

This photo was taken in early June of the suspects using the stolen card in Puyallup.

The two suspects “hit the motherlode” when they stole mail which included a brand new debit card and PIN.

The stolen card was subsequently used in Federal Way, Tacoma, Tukwila, and Puyallup.

The fraud was discovered recently when unknown charges popped up on the victim’s new debit card account. The bank had supposedly mailed the card and PIN in separate envelopes, but both appeared to have been stolen from the mail.

The victim is a resident of SeaTac, and the loss is several thousand dollars.

If anyone recognizes the suspects they are asked to call the King County Sheriff’s Office at (206) 296-3311 (24 hours) or 9-1-1.

    It appears that these thieves in the State of Washington were real brave. Scammers have in the last year or so have been getting very sophisticated in their innovation, technology, and downright tenacity.I was involved with a couple of scams a 2 years ago, but it was tame compared to what is now going on. There is a book out, a self-help guide called ‘Scammers Among Us Beware’ published by Eloquent Books, which can be viewed and purchased on relating to scams and fraud.
