A 22-year-old Spring Water Lane woman called police Aug. 29 after noticing $275.95 in fraudulent charges on her debit card.
The perpetrator bought a PlayStation Portable video game system and $20 worth of pet supplies online with the card information, police said, but had the goods shipped to the complainant's house on Spring Water Lane.
The complainant then received an email asking her to ship the goods to Alabama.
Police said no address was given in the shipping request and that the woman had the card in her possession.
