Target discovers extreme couponer to be extreme ORC thief - generating $300,000 a year  Police uncovered a 5-year counterfeit coupon operation run out of a Phoenix, Arizona hotel room by 51-year-old Terry Darcy and her son. Target store analysts grew suspicious of Darcy when they found that she was getting large amounts of goods for free using coupons, so they contacted detectives from the Phoenix Police Business and Economic Stability Team. Over a period of six weeks, the team reviewed the evidence, which included receipts and security footage, and found that in that short period of time the suspect stole $175,000 in products from the retailer. A raid on the hotel turned up master coupons, stacks of fake homemade coupons, and stolen products estimated to be worth more than $500. Officer James R. Holmes of the Phoenix Police Department told KPHO CBS 5, “We’re estimating probably about $300,000 a year in retail fraud.” It was money that the Phoenix woman used to fund an expensive $145-per-day heroin addiction. Officer Holmes told KSAZ Fox 10, "She certainly had the equipment to make those counterfeit coupons look real...She would do this all day long everyday. It was almost like it was her job." (Source

Skimming Gang - man, two women sought in credit card cloning fraud at Biloxi Walmart buying thousands in gift cards  Security cameras at the Biloxi Wal-Mart took pictures of a man and two women suspected of using stolen credit cards and "cloned" credit cards to buy thousands of dollars in gift cards, police Detective Carl Short said. The pictures were taken during their visit Dec. 10 to the Wal-Mart on CT Switzer Sr. Road, but police believe one of them returned to the store twice over the next two days and bought more gift cards using other credit cards believed to be stolen. Police believe the group is using a technique of "skimming" information from legitimate credit cards, possibly by downloading an application on a smartphone, and "cloning" the cards by copying the encrypted information onto magnetic strips on blank credit cards.
