Another Milton Taxpayer Victim of Fraud

The following information was supplied by the Milton police department. Where arrests or charges are mentioned, it does not indicate a conviction.

A Soneley Way resident was the victim of forgery on tax refunds made out in her name.

The woman told Milton police on May 25 that she called the IRS to ask when she would receive her tax return, but the federal agency told her it had been mailed in January and cashed on Feb. 16.

When she called the Georgia Department of Revenue she heard the same story.

A Roswell woman went to work at a Windward Parkway fast food restaurant the afternoon of May 25, only to discover her car was missing when she got off work at 1:25 a.m. on May 26.

She told Milton police that her mother took car of payments on the car, so she didn't believe it had been repossessed. However, when the officer checked, he learned that the car had been taken back by the bank finance company several hours earlier.

Debit Card Fraud to Buy Groceries?

A Commonwealth Way resident reported to Milton police that his bank notified him on May 27 of possible fraudulent activity on his debit card.

The victim confirmed fraudulent activity occurred, with a $234 purchase being made at a Kroger in Marietta by someone else.

The bank representative told him a second attempted purchase at a Sandy Springs business was stopped.

The man told the officer the only time the debit card was in someone else's hands was when he paid for dinner at a restaurant on GA 9 the day before.
