Gerry McCann used two credit cards

The father of Madeleine McCann used two MasterCad credit cards, according to an information from Detective Inspector Gary Watts, from Leicestershire Constabulary, to Frances Kennah, head of UK Central Authority, a Home Office department in charge of the cooperation with foreign police forces.

The information, dated from May 23, 2008, refers the request by Portuguese authorities, through an International Letter of Request, for the transaction details of the credit cards used by Gerry McCann.

PJ asked for the records of a period of six months, starting on April 1, 2007, but Home Office thought that period to be disproportionate and suggested they could just give information about the days before and after Madeleine's disappearance.

The information from Detective Inspector Gary Watts states that the report concerning the transactions of those two credit cards wasn't finished, following a conversation between Detective Superintendent Stuart Prior and the recipient of the information, Frances Kennah.

A previous report about the financial situation of the McCann couple and their friends, produced by the Economic Crime Unit from Leicestershire Constabulary, found no records of credit cards or loans from Kate and Gerry McCann.

Not a flattering camera angle for Gerald - I am sure this couple were up to their pathetic eyeballs in debt.

Any possibility of resolving the case ended when the couple and their friends left Portugal, because any access to evidence had to be approved by the British government. Credit card records are sometimes critical to resolving a case. If they were in debt, I'm sure the money they received from the public has erased that debt.
