MILTON, Ga. — A Milton woman called police Sept. 23 after she noticed her identity had been used to open a phone account. 

That afternoon, she received a notification that her phone service had been changed. When she tried to call her phone, an unknown man answered and quickly hung up.

The woman contacted her bank, and a representative said that someone had recently attempted to open several accounts with her information.

Police advised the woman to freeze her credit and place a fraud alert on it.
