Deputies: Suspect created fake ID, went on shopping sprees in Beaverton man’s name

Posted: Updated:

The Washington County Sheriff’s Office is looking for a suspect accused of using a fake driver’s license to apply for and use credit cards with a Beaverton man’s name and social security number.

Deputies released a photograph of the fake identification, saying the photo on it appears to match the suspect while the name, the address matches the victim and the license number belongs to a second victim.

They also released a surveillance photo showing a man walking out of the Beaverton Target where the credit account was opened.

Deputies said the suspect bought an iPad at the Target and also opened accounts at a nearby Walmart and Home Depot. The suspect is accused of making $1,500 in purchases at the Home Depot.

The victim's wife told FOX 12 Tuesday morning that her husband, Miguel Yac Riscajche, got a phone call in October from a person at Target trying to confirm that he’d recently opened a credit account there.

At first, his wife said they thought it was a scam call, but then realized it was a legitimate inquiry from Target into an account they said they never opened.

Yac Riscajche’s wife said the thief bought the iPad, an Apple Watch and other items in her husband’s name.

They later checked their credit score and started receiving credit card bills in the mail from various businesses, including more fraudulent purchases from a local Walmart and Home Depot.

She added that the latest case happened just a day ago when they received a charge of $2,800 from a Best Buy store.

“I didn’t sleep last night,” the victim’s wife told FOX 12. “I just feel sick, so violated. Why do people do this? I honestly feel sick.”

Deputies also released a photograph of the SUV believed to have been driven by the suspect. It’s a white newer-model Mazda CX-5 SUV.

Anyone with information on the suspect should call the Washington County Sheriff’s Office non-emergency tip line at 503-629-0111.
