Johns Creek residents victims in ID frauds

Posted:

JOHNS CREEK, Ga. – Three Cameron Bridge Way residents were recently the victims of identity fraud, after they found people had tried to open credit card accounts using their names and Social Security numbers.

One victim told police she was contacted Feb. 24 by Atlanta Police after someone used her identity at least seven times late last year in attempts to open credit cards. The suspect used her name and used an Atlanta address.

Another said that someone in California tried to complete a money transfer of $9,000 to buy a vehicle. Several other attempts were made to open accounts at national businesses, including successfully charging $2,250 on a Verizon Wireless account.

Another resident said someone tried to open a credit union account in January of this year. They were denied.
