The Redwood County Sheriff’s Department has received multiple reports of credit card fraud in recent weeks.

According to a Sept. 17 report from the sheriff’s department, during these events a business accepts payment via credit card only to have a charge back occur several days after the transaction.

Often, the card used in the transaction has been reported stolen.

The Redwood County Sheriff’s Department would like to remind businesses to verify the legitimacy of a company, or its representative, prior to the conducting transactions.
