FORT MYERS, Fla. – A Florida SouthWestern State College student said her school debit card information was compromised then used by a woman who went on a shopping spree at a Cape Coral Target.

Nicole Belmont said the accused thief racked up $400 in charges on her student card. Several hundred dollars is a lot for college students, Belmont said.

“It’s a lot for us, especially paying for classes and books and everything like that,” she said. “That was my money to be used towards school and you just took it to go on a shopping spree. That’s not fair.”

Detectives are still searching for the woman accused of illegally using cloned credit cards.

The investigation began on March 8 when Belmont reported her card was fraudulently used at two locations in Cape Coral.

Surveillance video from the Target located at 1890 NE Pine Island Road shows a woman using the cloned card.
