Vancouver PD & Canadian Border Services Agency's 'Project Lancer' investigation busts major ID theft ring that included 200 fraudulent credit cards & gift cards  Identity fraud with a new twist: the scamsters exchanged rewards points for gift cards. “I would say (the value of points stolen is) in the hundreds of thousands of dollars,” said Ens. A long list of fraud charges has been approved against Surrey couple Daniel Adam Suchecki, 34, and Christa Dawn Hucal, 25. When the bust went down, police found ID and credit cards in a victim’s name, about 200 credit cards and ID in other names, stolen mail (from which the scamsters found the details to enact fraud) and a credit card reader/writer. Also recovered was $20,000 in e-gift and hard copy gift cards, along with four cars. Also recovered were three stolen vehicles: a 2010 BMB 323i, a 2011 Ford Escape and a 2007 Honda motorcycle. A credit card manufacturing machine was found in a fraudulently-rented 2011 Jeep Cherokee. While RBC was a favorite of the fraudsters because their reward program allowed people to cash in points for gift cards without using a PIN, Sgt. Randy Fincham said: “It’s not just RBC.” (Source
