Bay Area Restaurant Center Of ID Theft Investigation
KENDALL, FL - MARCH 07: Ileana Garcia looks in her wallet for credit cards she wants to melt over a hot plate as she tries to dig herself out of credit card debt during a sermon by Kevin Cross about faith-based financial management at the Miami Vineyard Community Church on March 7, 2009 in Kendall, Florida. Cross preaches to people about the biblical principles of money management with his idea of steps that should be taken for handling finances to glorify and honor God. With the economic hard times that have fallen upon many people, churches around the country are trying new programs such as Cross's Margin and Meaning events, to guide people out of their debt and get back on their feet financially.

Check those bank and credit card statements because hundreds of people in the Bay Area could be victims of a new identity theft ring. Vacaville police have traced a string of ID thefts back to a Nation's Giant Hamburgers Restaurant, according to the Contra Costa Times.
Police are asking anyone who has used a credit card at the Nation's restaurant in Vacaville in the last three months to review their statements for any irregularities.
They say a problem with the credit card machine is to blame. That issue has apparently been fixed.
