Shanita Kimble, 30, of Heph­zibah, told deputies that someone stole her fiancé’s 1996 Honda Ac­cord from the 3000 block of Sad­dle­brook Drive between 8 p.m. Fri­day and 9 a.m. Saturday, a Rich­­mond County sheriff’s report said.

The car, described as light blue with 15-inch aluminum alloy wheels, had a wallet inside with debit and credit cards. The Honda is valued at $5,000.

Kimble told authorities that she received a call from Wal-mart in North Augusta advising that someone had used her debit card, the report said.

I would like some clarification on this:

"Kimble told authorities that she received a call from Wal-mart in North Augusta advising that someone had used her debit card, the report said."

If Walmart knew it was an unauthorized use, why didn't they seize the card, call the police or whatever?

How did....

they use the debit card without the security code? And, how did Walmart know who to call?

who spends money on 15-inch aluminum alloy wheels for their Losermobile.

Use it as a CREDIT CARD.

You have the option and without a PIN. It just takes one stroke of the cash register.

to place on the rear window of their clearly labeled Mustang. The same people who drive around sitting in the floor board of their vehicles. The same people who want to appear to be successful drug dealers or pimps.

Dixieman, the article is a

Dixieman, the article is a little misleading. " '96 Honda valued at $5000". Actually, the Honda is valued at $1000 and the rims $4000.

Yeh, I always leave my wallet

Yeh, I always leave my wallet in the car overnight in a South Augusta neighborhood. Geez.....I'd take the seats out of my car if I could.

And good question about how did Walmart process a debit card without a PIN.

And, as a side note, I'm not too crazy about some stores not requiring a signature for credit card purchases under a certain amount. I wish they would go back to requiring signatures on every transaction and making the clerk check the signature to make sure it looks a little something like the one on the credit card. Credit card companies are getting just like the federal and state governments where the build the cost of fraud into the price of their product and don't even try to stop it. It's like they are all encouraging folks to steal.

stolen credit card

some things don't make any sense - and 'several transactions'?? Must have watched the amounts being charged on the bank's website.
