Scene Lord's Advice of the Day: To Catch a Thief

It may seem easy for a credit-thief, one can get a cardswipe for a mere Mid credit on the 'market, so what is a SL to do?

The Corporations can't monitor everyone, but they can make random looks, and the credits still go through them. If a victim you know is emptying stolen cards (and leaving bodies), or simply running a lot of cards through a 'market 'swipe, there might be a chance they will get busted. The chance of getting caught can be steep, add the victim's status to the credit levels being transferred (credit threat). Roll for each transfer on a 10 they are watching. Then roll equal or lower the 'credit threat' to catch an illegal transfer.
