These two are family and family of someone...

Just do the right thing and turn them in to authorities before they steal from you.

Offer them 1 million dollars

Offer them 1 million dollars to turn themselves in...and when they do...don't pay them!

wait a minute

from the dates, it would appear the card was lifted prior to August 26. It was used 3 occasions for total purchases of about $8,000.

There should have been at least 2 billing cycles. And yet it is just reported now.

Sorry, but something is not adding up here.

Billing cycles

Not all billing cycles fall on the first of the month. The article says the purchases were made late August and the video was obtained mid-September. The detectives are just now getting the info about the video out.
