A woman was shopping at a local TJ Maxx and discovered her wallet was missing.

Before she could report her cards stolen, they had already been used.

The suspects used her cards to purchase over five hundred dollars in gift cards, an Ipod, and a camera.

The suspects are described as follows: Hispanic male, close cut dark brown hair, brown eyes, heavy build about 5’8”.

A Hispanic female with shoulder length dark brown hair and about 5’4” average build.

A Hispanic male, unknown hair color, average build about 5’10”.

Anyone who can identify either of the suspects is asked to call CrimeStoppers at 574-Tips.

    My credit and debit cards do not have my signature on them at all. I wrote "CHECK ID" on each one. Probably only about 1 out of 5 clerks will ask for ID. When they do, I thank them. I recently was handed a relative's CC while she was in the hospital. She had me make several purchases for her. Not even one clerk asked for ID even though it was clearly written on the back instead of her signature.

    I love the description of the perps in this case...2 Hispanic Males and a Hispanic female...vague descriptions...Hello! this is Florida. Those descriptions fit about half the Hispanics in the state!

    Just stay out of Tallahasee. Tallahassee is next to Marshall Law, day or night. Prowlers, stalkers, and opportunitist on ever corner, nook & cranny. The Mayor and City commission is right in line with these thieves. Marks? Proctor? Someone please define the difference for me.....

    And why did the sales clerk as for ID???????? --- BECAUSE VISA's cardholder policy PROHIBITS merchants from asking for ID!

    People of this same discription were caught for breaking into a car in this same area of the flyover and stealing a purse, the could easily be back at it. they use the card asap at gas stations to see if still active, then head off the walmart or online orders the require no ID.Stores don't even ck info on apps for new credit so fraud is a breeze.

    No excuse for anyone to rob anyone because they got laid off. I hate that people are losing their jobs but you do your best and find something else even if its not to your standard. Hard work never hurt anyone... Hopefully they find the idiots and teach them a good lesson in prison.... I agree if you are here illegally please ship them back!!!!!!!!!

    My credit card was stolen.....NOT ONE clerk checked for ID.....This was even though the credit card was in a woman's name and was being used by three teenaged boys!!! Also, Publix stopped checking credit card signatures because someone complained!!! You can put a sticky with "ask for ID" on the back of the card by the signature.

      There are no rules that force cashiers to check for ID. Credit card companies would rather not have retailers checking for ID's because it slows down the transaction making it an easier choice to use a check, or cash.

        Anon, you are absolutely right. And actually, stores can be fined by Visa & MasterCard for requiring ID & also they are not supposed to require a minimum purchase amount or charge a fee for using your card; such as conveinence stores, chinese restaurants & all they other places that do. If they are reported to Visa or MasterCard; the merchant will be fined $10,000 or more & can have their licesnse revoked from taking Visa or MasterCard.....however, it takes people to report the businesses before the fees can come to a stop....just find the form online on Visa & MC's website to report businesses in violation...you'd be surprised how fast they stop charging you 89cents to use your card or make you spend $10 before they take the card.

          Where did you get your information from regarding not suppose to require a minimu purchase amount or charge a fee? I went to the Visa website and found "Minimum Purchase U.S. retailers may require a minimum purchase amount on credit card transactions. The minimum purchase amount must not exceed $10 and does not apply to transactions made with a debit card."

          You have not one iota of grey matter in your empty skull, loser! You insist that Visa and Mastercard will fine and penalize the retailer for asking for ID, you are insane! You have no pets, they all ran away. You show the rest-of-us, the dirty and the uneducated, where my MC cannot require an ID, stupid? Show me, teach me where my Visa cannot require an ID!Dudette, I am a contractor, and I have dozens!!! Do you have dozens, punk? I have dozens! No S#! ! I am happy that many of these retailers, "require ID!"

      The store and the clerk did not violate any rule or law, so how can they be held liable?
