    Let this be a lesson to you boys and girls, never leave your wallet, purse or valuables out in your vehicle! I do have to say that I have never met a woman that would be out of arms reach of her purse…..what was it doing in her car? Was it really left in there? or is that the story she is using? She may have used her cards and then told police they used them….most banks will refund the money back if you were not the one using them

      What is wrong with you how dare you accuse the victim? You really have a wicked mind. They have these guys on camera in several places using her cards. They had no right to be on her property let alone being in her car. Yes she was protected by her bank but violated just the same. And if you knew the victim you would know she is one of the most upstanding citizens Goldsboro has and has a reputation across our state as an honest, and giving. Please think before you write such wicked comments.

        What is wrong with me? I have just faced reality long ago. There are a lot of people that are willing to cheat their bank or insurance company or even their own family. You just need to keep an open mind and look at all possibilities, after all that is what the police do
