ALPHARETTA, Ga. — A woman called police Feb. 26 after she received a debit card she had not applied for.

The card had the woman’s name and information on it. She spoke with a representative from the company’s fraud department, who said that someone had opened an account using a fake Georgia driver’s license with her information. 

The woman cancelled the account before she lost any money. She also froze her credit.

The woman said her bank account had been hacked in November and that is how her information was fraudulently obtained.
