A Park Street resident lost more than $40,000 after her credit card was fraudulently used multiple times in September, according to New Canaan police.
The 75-year-old victim, whose card was issued in China, noticed several unusual charges on her bank statement Oct. 6, even though she hadn't lost the card, police said.
Most, if not all, purchases were made at Target stores in New York City between Sept. 2 and 22, according to the report. Police said the fraudulent transactions total at least $40,000.
The case is under investigation.
