It's as true in 2012 as it was in 1967: "The future is plastics."
Benjamin Braddock, Dustin Hoffman's character in "The Graduate," was advised the future in business success was plastics. Forty-five years later, with a slight twist, the future -- and present -- in access device fraud is the plastics of debit and credit cards.
To continue a trend of recent weeks, reported two more recent identity fraud cases. An unidentified 49-year-old Aster Road resident was the first of the two to be victimized. Her debit card was compromised between Feb. 2 and March 8 for a total of $1,713.97.
Elizabeth Delarosa of 3752 Notch St. also had numbers from her debit card stolen, police said. They did not release the amount but said her card was used to make fraudulent purchases between March 8 and 12.
