TBI's Most Wanted
He's said to be a specialist when it comes to identity theft.
Surveillance video shows Richard Neil Barefoot walking into a local Target store.
Kristin Helm with the TBI says he cleaned out an ATM machine with a fraudulently obtained credit card.
"His MO is to steal mail out of people's mailboxes, credit card applications, fill em' out, send em' in -- apply for credit in someone else's name."
Agents say Barefoot's been assuming people's identities across the southeast since the mid 90's.
"He actually had both my wife and me, our social security numbers."
Benny Page of Sumner County is one of Barefoot's victims.
Investigators say Barefoot staked out the couple's mailbox, tricked a series of banks and turned their cards into thousands of dollars in cash and merchandise.
Statements show Barefoot rang up more than $10,000 on the Page's credit alone.
"Just after we got that bill, we started getting credit cards. Some the individual picked up. I don't know how many he ordered but I want to say 20 in our name"
Police almost caught Page at a bank in Collierville in October of 2007.
He sped away in a white, 1998 Buick Skylark with a fake Tennessee license plate 469-RBT.
The TBI says he may also be using Kentucky plate 081-EXA.
Richard Barefoot was born in 1953.
He has gray hair and hazel eyes.
He's about 6'3" and nearly 200 pounds.
If you see him, call 1-8-00-TBI-FIND.
