IDENTITY THEFT: Officers were dispatched to the 600 Southbrook Drive on an identity theft in which the victim has lost $3,000. The female complaint advised that approximately two nights prior at approximately 10 p.m. she received a phone call and the caller ID showed “Chase”. When she answered the individual on the other end of the line claimed to be with Chase Bank and stated she was such a great customer that they wanted her to open a checking account. She advised she has a credit card through Chases Bank, but no other account. Her checking and savings are through Greenville Federal. Despite refusing the service and not giving out her information, the person on the other end had her social security number and other information. She said she has been scammed before, so she contacted her bank the following day and advised them so they could watch for any fraudulent activity. The bank called her and asked if she knew a subject named “Pearl” from California, but she did not. “Pearl” had cashed a check from her account for approximately $3,000, and the victim also called the social security department and everywhere else she could think of to prevent any further loss. The case will need further investigation.
