Ten percent of Americans have been victims of credit card fraud, according to the Statistic Brain Web. Some of those victims are from Ingham County. “I have twice” been a victim, Ted Johnson, a bus driver, said. Johnson said he got the verification from his bank first, but he did not report it to the police. Thomas Holt, an assistant professor in the School of Criminal Justice at Michigan State University, said fraud can manifest itself in different ways.
