Hi,I'm Zoey and I'll be assisting you. I'm reviewing your question now. Are you online at this time?
Did you contact your card carrier and report the unauthorized use? Why were the police not interested?
The first thing you ought to do, which I do not see that you have done here, is to contact your credit card carrier or bank and report the unauthorized use of your card. Cancel your card so that no further charges can be made and get them to issue you a new one. Tell them that you want to open up a dispute because you did not make these charges. If you call your bank or carrier right away, generally they will reimburse you for the unauthorized use.
You should also go back to the police. I don't know why they are not interested in your matter, but your bank will want you to at least file a report and to see a copy of that report so that they can go after the perpetrator if possible.
