September 17, 2013

CUMMING, Ga. A woman got a call from AT&T about activating a new phone, but she never tried to do so, according to a Cumming Police incident report.

On Sept. 1, a woman told officers she got a call from an AT&T employee who said they got disconnected while trying to activate a new cellphone number account.

The woman said she was not trying to activate a new phone. The employee said someone with her cellphone number and her Social Security number requested to make changes to her account.

The woman again said she did not, so the account was suspended and put under fraud alert.
