SPOKANE, Wash. -

Dozens of families in the Inland Northwest are claiming that hundreds of dollars have been taken from them in recent weeks because of what the secret service acknowledges is a credit card fraud issue.

Grocery store wholesaler URM has said they are launching a review of its system because many banks and credit unions believe they are connected to the source of the security breach. The Secret Service is calling it the largest fraud ring in years.

KHQ spoke with families across the Inland Northwest from Spokane all the way to Central Washington on Tuesday. One woman said she was shopping at Target in the Spokane area on Saturday when she was alerted by the bank of a $500 purchase in Minnesota. She's since filed a fraud report and may not be reimbursed for a week.

Another woman in Quincy said she learned of a $100 purchase in Georgia after her card was declined as they tried to buy groceries in Quincy. She also filed a report with the bank.

The Secret Service would not speculate at this point as to what was going on. They only would say that their investigation is underway.
