SUMMIT COUNTY, Colorado – The Summit County Sheriff’s Office is seeking a woman suspected of gift-card fraud at local businesses.

“The suspect presents American Express gift cards as payment for merchandise at the various businesses. The magnetic strips on the cards do not register when swiped, and the vendor has to manually enter the card numbers into the system,” according to a SCSO press release.

The suspect is described as white, 20 to 30 years old with shoulder-length blonde or red hair, between 5’5″ and 5’10” and weighing 110 to 120 pounds. She is believed to have used the names “Hannah Minor” and Cory.

Once the bogus American Express cards are processed through the system, vendors learn they are fraudulent.

Anyone with information regarding the suspect ” including possible victims ” is asked to call the SCSO Criminal Investigation Division at (970) 453-2232, ext. 325.
