The Loudoun County Sheriff's Office is investigating 50 cases of credit fraud.
Investigators said they may be connected.
In many cases, the victim’s credit cards are being used throughout the United States and even overseas.
County officials suggest that consumers make sure all credit cards are signed. Keep a record of your account numbers, their expiration dates, and the phone number and address of each company. Also, never give out your account number over the phone unless you are making the call to a company you know is reputable.
