SANDY, Ore. – The massive credit card fraud conspiracy KATU uncovered earlier this month has now reached well over 100 cases, police said on Tuesday.

Police have surveillance video of several suspects, including a man with a tattoo on the left side of his neck that appears to read “506.”

The Sandy Police Department said victims living in and around Sandy have reported more than $52,000 in fraudulent charges.

In the beginning, the charges were coming from California, Florida and North Carolina. But, police said, victims began reporting cash advances on their cards in Washington and Oregon.

Police said they still aren't sure how the cards are being compromised, but initially it was thought that malicious computer software at local businesses - including a Dairy Queen - were to blame.
