DUNWOODY, Ga. — An incident of identity fraud was reported May 3 after a man reported repeated fraudulent charges on his credit card. The first purchase was for a television at Walmart on Ashford Dunwoody Road. He was notified of the initial purchase April 16 for a total of $138. The victim then spoke with his credit card company and received a new card.

The victim then advised the officer that he had received a package in the mail May 2 shipped to his address but with a different name. Around this time, he also received a pre-paid style card from Walmart and notification of a credit card denial from Macy’s, where the suspect attempted to open an account using the victim’s name.

Another package containing a cook book was then shipped to the victim’s address May 3 using the same false recipient name but also showing the order came from a person believed to be the real person behind the fraud. The victim also found an unfamiliar address linked to his credit history.
