(WESH) Josephine Lupo, 74, was angry to the point of tears describing how she became a victim of credit card fraud.

"I had to call everybody," Lupo said.

On July 5, Lupo was walking to her car in the Walmart parking lot in Ocala Florida during a rainstorm when a woman approached and offered Lupo a ride to her car.

"Bad! Very bad. I would not do that to anyone. I would not do that to anybody," Lupo said.
