JOHNS CREEK, Ga. — A man and a woman called police Aug. 21 after they realized they had become the victims of identity fraud.

A few days earlier, the two received several credit cards in the mail that they had not applied for, including bank accounts and a department store account. 

They called their creditors to place a fraud alert. The couple then stopped receiving mail for a few days and realized that the suspect had placed a hold on their mail without their authorization.
