If you checked photo ID on every CC purchase, you would eliminate most of this nonsense.

EXACTLY correct! It would

EXACTLY correct! It would take just a few seconds to verify the customer's identity, and that would save untold dollars, time, and grief! Why retailers don't/won't check is beyond me. If they're worried about ticking off the customers, once it's explained why it's being done, I'm quite sure the public will understand and comply. Just like why airlines had to tighten security for inspections. People got over the inconvenience.

Dec. 11 ?!

OK what is going on here? A December 11 fraudulent credit card purchase at JC Penney? You have got to be kidding! I'm all for getting any scoundrel/thief but come on. How many fraudulent credit card purchases have been made in the CSRA since Dec?

I'm thinking the victim has connections!

It is actually...

It is actually against the rules of the "terms of service" of credit card companies to check ID cards when purchasing items with a credit card. What the cashier should check is the signature on the back of the card for a correct match with the reciept.
