Raeshari Walker: Big-time fraud fugitive likes traveling in style — on your dime
The trio of Raeshari Walker, Christina Cannon, and James Zimmerman are all wanted in Washington state for identity theft and forgery crimes, but it’s Walker who King County Detectives really want to find.
She’s already in the FBI database, racking-up a lengthy criminal history that includes identity theft and fraud, and now she’s accused of financially terrorizing a woman by stealing her identity – even her social security number – to go on a massive criminal shopping spree. “This woman in a short amount of time has basically attempted to ruin our victim’s credit,” says King County Sgt. Cindi West. “ She has gone all over town opening up credit cards, fraudulently, in our victim’s name. She’s opened up accounts at Macy’s, Sleep Country, Discount Tire, Ethan Allen, and she even attempted to purchase a vehicle under this victim’s name.”
All three have been on the run for more than a year. They were tracked to the Los Angeles/Southern California area, but have avoided capture.
King county detectives recently figured out Walker’s cell phone number, and were close to getting her in cuffs. “She was on a train from Seattle headed back to Los Angeles. Of course, she jumped off the train somewhere, and we haven’t been able to locate her since. Another interesting note is she had purchased the train pass using a stolen credit card, and she didn’t just buy a regular train ticket – she bought a ‘Sleeper Car’ train ticket, which is much more expensive than your normal one.”
- RAESHARI WALKER, 28 years old
- CHRISTINA CANNON, 26 years old
- JAMES ZIMMERMAN, 29 years old
Detectives say they all go by several fake names.
