FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. — After a woman used her credit card for a transaction at a local retail store on Peachtree Parkway, the same card was used later for a second transaction for nearly $230.

The woman went to the store Dec. 13 and made a $14 purchase. The cashier reportedly had trouble with the transaction, so she entered the card number manually.

About 30 minutes later, the woman noticed a second transaction from the same store for $228 that she didn’t authorize. That receipt had another person’s name. The woman had her card with her the entire time.

The manager provided copies of receipts for both transactions. The deputy asked for the manager and cashier’s birthdays, and the cashier reportedly hesitated. The deputy asked her after she left the store if she had anything else to add to the story, but she said no and became defensive.

The manager requested the store’s video footage from the corporate office.
