Lexington sports store Cat Fan-Attic says it, along with some of its customers, are the victims of a crime. Someone is trying to cash in on stolen credit card numbers for phone orders to the store.

Cat Fan-Attic is a popular place to go for sports clothing and memorabilia, but recently the store is dealing with something they haven't dealt with before.

"We've been victimized and because of the value of our customers and the base we've developed here, we want to make sure they're aware of a recent incident that happened with us here," says Lester Boyd, the stores co-owner.

Store officials say it was recently brought to their attention that someone had been using credit card numbers that were given when some people called in for purchases.

:We're talking about a minimal list of phone-in credit card orders," says Lester Boyd.

Now they are letting everyone who has called in with a credit card since January know about the incident. They will be mailing 172 letters this week to customers who have phoned in their information.

"These are just phone-in orders and has nothing to do with our website, which is secure, or any purchases that have been done at the store. That's secure as well," says Lester Boyd.

They're assuring customers they're working with authorities to catch the person responsible.

"I'm a former player and played at UK and I love our fans and our fans love us and so we want to make sure they're protected," says Lester Boyd.

Lexington police say they do have a person of interest in this case. If you believe you are a victim of this crime, please give them a call.
