When Andre Cherkasov reported suspicious fraud activity while working at the Richfield Best Buy over the holidays, he didn't know he might be coming to the rescue of scores of victims of identity theft across the Twin Cities.

Cherkasov was wary when a woman named Linea Palmisano opened a credit card account.

"Just the way she behaved, I kind of knew she was on some kind of a substance," Cherkasov said in a recent interview.
