Identity Thieves Used Money to Buy Cars, Shop
Victims of a large-scale identity theft scam in North Central Florida say they want justice.
So far, more than a dozen people have been arrested in connection to the scam.
Detectives say 19-year-old Ali Barbour produced fake payroll checks that made it as far as Broward County.
Those involved in the scam also stole people's credit information, using it to buy cars and go on shopping sprees.
One victim told TV20 that he lived in New Jersey when someone in Gainesville stole his credit card information.
Detectives are still looking for several more suspects.
They say Benita Beatrice Williams was Barbour's top accomplice.
She is still on the loose.
