  • How do you know it's them who stole your credit card? You can't just go running to the police unless you have concrete proof. They'll just file a report and tell you there's nothing they can do. You need to contact your credit card company first and formost. they have a team that investigates that stuff.

  • Give it to the police department and they will be able to trace it to the person. You will need to file a police report, but they will find out who it is. DO NOT do it on your own. Call your credit card company and tell them your card was lost or stolen and they will close the account and set up a new one, but you will also need to file a police report.

  • Have you guys ever had a credit card stolen on the internet? My mom did. The police told her to report it to the credit card company. The credit card company runs an investigation, and if there is something concrete enough they report it to the proper authorities. It's not that simple for the cops to just track down an email address. Go to the credit card company. Doing it yourself may unintentionally tamper with evidence.

  • file a police report for your record but don't stop there, give the email address to your creditor's fraud department, you can also google the email address in quotation marks (i.e. "email@inbox.me") to pull up anything public on the internet that may identify this individual. hth and I hope this perpetrator is found out and justice is served! Be Blessed!
