Oregon man foils attempted identity theft

SCAPPOOSE, Ore. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - An Oregon man proved you shouldn't try to steal his identity.

Tom Lambert noticed a charge of $7,000 on his credit card for a luxury hotel in Florida.

Instead of calling the bank or the police, Lambert called the hotel.

He told the manager what was going on, and in a few minutes, the two people posing as him and his wife were being held by hotel security.

Tom was told the Miami Police Department was on its way.
