Credit card

thefts reported

Goldsboro police are investigating two reports of credit card thefts.

Donna Ann McMurray of Lucama said somebody stole her credit card and used it at several places. She said the credit card company notified her and said the account was automatically canceled due to unusual spending.

Another credit card number was used without permission. Hvong Dinh at Focus Nails, 1312 W. Grantham, St., told police his credit card number was used three times for purchases totaling $79.71. He said on April 6 someone made a $1 Internet purchase with his Capital One card. He said the same person made another Internet purchase on the account on April 7 for $38.98 and on April 9 for $39.73. He said the company listed on his statement was Paycom.net, and company officials refused to provide any information without a subpoena. Dinh said during the time the account was being used the card was in his possession.
