Spokane police warning retailers about fraudulent GoPro purchases

From staff reports
Spokane police are warning retailers about several people who have been attempting to purchase GoPro cameras with stolen credit cards. The police department has received two reports of people attempting to make similar purchases. In the first, on June 10 around 1 p.m., a dark-haired man and blond woman (pictured, left) used a stolen credit card at Wheel Sport, 1711 N. Division St., to purchase two GoPro cameras, valued at a total of $978. The second report was made on June 23 around 4 p.m. by Sportsman’s Warehouse, 6720 N. Division St. In that incident, a dark-haired woman (pictured, right) attempted to use two different stolen credit cards to buy six GoPro cameras, valued at a total of $2,699. An employee who had been informed of this scam by other Sportsman’s Warehouse locations in Oregon stopped the transaction, a news release from the police said. The suspects are believed to be driving a newer black Chevy Tahoe and a white Chevy Traverse, both with California plates. Anyone who may have been victimized by them or who has information about them is asked to call Crime Check at (509) 456-2233.
