JOHNS CREEK, Ga. — A man contacted police Sept. 29 after he reportedly lost $400 to someone who had hacked his friend’s Snapchat account.

Earlier that day, the man said he had received a message on Snapchat from his friend stating that he needed to unload some money from his stocks.

Soon after, the man received a text from an unknown number asking for his bank account’s pin number and Social Security number. The man said he only provided his pin.

Later, the man saw that $400 had been withdrawn from his account. He then contacted his friend, who said his Snapchat account had been hacked.
