Credit fraud happens every day - perhaps it has even happened to you. As unfortunate as it is, identities get stolen all the time, and sometimes by the people we least expect. Now, Florida police are searching for a woman who stole an identity and spent money in several local stores.
According to the information posted by the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office, the woman in question opened an account at First Tech Federal Credit Union with a $40,000 credit line, then proceeded to spend the money at Publix, Target, and Winn-Dixie stores throughout Hillsborough, Pasco and Polk County.
The perpetrator who appears to be heavily pregnant was caught on security footage, which was released to the public by the sheriff's office. Officials are now asking for the public's help in identifying the suspect.

No further details have been released to the public about the possible identity of the woman, or how much she had spent during her shopping trips.
But the public is demanding for more information:
"How the hell you get a $40,000 credit line without the bank doing a hell of a background check," one Facebook user commented, to which another responded "and how do you spend it at Winn Dixie? no one got [suspicious] about the 327 carts of groceries?"
