BAKERSFIELD-- It appears the credit card fraud we reported on Tuesday isn't just affecting Kern Schools Federal Credit Union members.
Rose Ward knew something was not right. She saw more than $100 charged to her Wells Fargo debit card and the last place she used it was her work cafeteria.
"I can't believe there are people that are so dishonest that can go out and do something like this," Ward said.
Edward Tubbs splits time between here and Washington state and noticed something with his Key Bank debit card after he used it to buy gas.
"It's really tough,“ Tubbs said. “I couldn't figured out how it happened, but I saw on the news it happened to other people so I called the news."
Ward and Tubbs, along with the people we told you about Tuesday, all had charges from the same place: a grocery store in Ontario, Canada called Mona Fine Foods.
With most banks when you alert them to the charges, you will not be penalize you for the fraud. But, it takes time for an investigation and for the banks to credit your account. It is small consolation to people like Ward who feels she was violated and planned to use the money for the Fourth of July.
"I told my husband yesterday we are going to have ribeye steaks and barbecue,” Ward said. “I guess now we are having hot dogs."
17 News contacted Canadian police Wednesday. We were told they can't act until one of the victims in Bakersfield files a police report locally. Then, Bakersfield police, they say, will contact authorities in Canada.
