Identity Theft

On Feb. 14, around 4:30 p.m., a Deerfield resident filed a police report regarding a recent identity theft, according to police. The victim was notified by T-Mobile of suspicious activity on his account, but the victim told officers that he had not opened an account with the company. T-Mobile told him that his Social Security Number was used to activate five phones by someone in Detroit who arranged a pick-up in Ohio, police say. The resident was billed $310.97 by T-Mobile, but the company said he did not have to pay the bill after he filed a claim with their fraud department. The victim declined further police assistance and only requested that the incident gets documented.
