Woman catches fifth fraud attempt



MILTON, Ga. — A woman met with police Feb. 22 when she once again discovered identity fraud on her account.

The woman had been notified two days earlier that someone had used her identity in an attempt to purchase a car in Texas.

This is not the first time the woman has had problems with identity theft. She has had four separate accounts opened under her name in the past 16 years, including for credit cards and retail stores. The total charges to the accounts are over $12,000.

This time, the woman was able to stop the attempted car purchase when she contacted the company.
