Burnaby RCMP is looking for help identifying a man suspected of going on a $75,000 spending spree with stolen credit and debit cards.

Police got a report in October 2022 from a man saying his wallet had been stolen and his debit and credit cards being used to make numerous fraudulent purchases, according to an RCMP news release.

The debit card was used at a bank machine in the Metrotown area to withdraw a “large sum of money,” and the credit cards were used at various businesses in Metrotown, South Vancouver and Richmond to purchase high-end electronics worth a total of $75,000, police said.
