Identity theft: 4300 block of Beulah Drive. A woman called police after receiving a letter from a credit company needing to verify her recent application for a card issued by a bank in Delaware. She had not applied for the card or given permission to anyone else to do so. The victim called “card services” and had the application canceled before notifying the three major credit bureaus of the incident.
Unauthorized use of access card: 5100 block of Angeles Crest Highway. A woman reported an “electronic theft of funds” from a pre-paid credit card belonging to her. On March 14, the victim called the customer service number on the card to check her balance and was informed the card had a zero balance. The customer service representative told her the balance amount had been transferred to another on March 11, but that the money could be returned after a 90-day investigation period. The card to which the funds were transferred was opened in Georgia, and the victim was referred to law enforcement. Because she did not have the card in her possession, deputies could not obtain her account number.
