    Police in Montgomery County, Maryland are on the look out for two people who have been accused of making $20,000 worth of credit card purchases. The problem is that the card did not belong to them.

    The couple was caught on surveillance footage walking through the doors of a beauty supply store.

    While the duo swiped the credit card worry free, a man in Silver Spring was oblivious to the fact that his identify had been stolen. That is until he opened up bill for a credit card he never applied for and saw that he owned $20,000.

    The pair racked up that huge debt in only 6 days. The first time they used the card was at a Target store spending $7,000.

    In another shopping spree, the suspects spent $11,000 at Beautician Design Center, which is where they bought salon chairs and supplies.

    They were required to show identification and the male suspect produced a fraudulent D.C. license with his picture but the victim’s name and personal information on it.

    Law enforcement has released the couple's image, hoping someone will come forward with information.
