A Grassy Hill Road woman filed a fraud complaint at police headquarters on Feb. 15. Police said someone had taken out a Paypal card in her name, made three charges, then applied for a credit card in her name from GE Capital Retail Bank.
The bank sent her a letter about the application on Feb. 10. The Monroe resident then called the bank because she had not applied for the card, when she found out about the active Paypal card. Police said charges had been made on it for $24.99, $99.99 and $162.
The woman closed the account for the Paypal card, according to the report.
Prior to this incident, police said fraudulent charges for a $125.49 Moneygram and $69.95 to Access.net had been made on the victim's Sikorsky Visa card on Jan 31. But she was reimbursed for those charges, so she did not report the incident to police, according to the report.
