Red Cross rip-off


The American Red Cross says this man, who identified himself as James H. Williams, stole $12,000 of debit cards which were meant to go to people who were victims of the June floods in Wisconsin. This picture is him using the debit cards at ATMs to get the cash off them.

The Red Cross says he submitted the names of 22 people who were supposedly flood victims living in Oconomowoc. The cards were activated and given to him, and he ran around Milwaukee to automatic teller machines to get the cash.

The agency says this creep has volunteered with the agency for four years. (This is probably why he knew it would be so easy to commit this fraud.) There is no word on how they figured out he kept the debit cards for his own use. Police are looking for him.
