A Queens man was found dead on a Brooklyn street — and someone has since gone on a shopping spree with his credit card, cops said.

Joseph Moore, 57, of Jackson Heights, was discovered lying face-up on the sidewalk at Linden Boulevard and Linwood Street just before 8 a.m. March 9, authorities said. 

Just a day after Moore’s body was found, the victim’s credit card was used to buy a $109 cell phone at Moshin Digital on Liberty Avenue near Autumn Avenue in Cypress Hills, police said.

The next day, two clothing purchases totalling $77 were made at Brooklyn Caps.

Cops released a photo late Thursday of the male suspect inside the cell phone store. It is unclear how he came in possession of the credit card.

The city medical examiner’s office is yet to issue a report on cause of death.
