MILTON, Ga. – A Milton woman was the target of identity theft after her Social Security number and name were used to rack up more than $2,000 in fees from Verizon.
According to the victim, she was called Sept. 10 by a collection agency working for Verizon and told that she had $2,321 in unpaid fees to the company. The fees were for four phone lines and an iPhone 5 ordered on May 14. The victim said she never opened such an account. The collection agency placed a freeze on the claim.
A check of the delivery address turned up a residence in Fort Worth, Texas.
