Bank Fails to Stop Fraud, But Apple Comes Through for Milton Man

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

A Milton man's bank allowed a fraudulent transaction on his credit card to buy two laptops online, but Apple stopped the fraud by refusing to complete the transaction.

The victim told Milton police that he noticed the transaction was pending when he checked his account early on Jan. 13. He contacted Apple and learned the transaction went through on his credit card, but Apple refused to complete the purchase of two MacBook Air computers. Not all of the information entered by the suspect matched his personal information, the Apple representative told him.

The total amount of the transaction was $2,758.88.

The Milton man asked for a police report since the transaction was still pending at SunTrust Bank. He already had canceled his credit car and checked all of his accounts and with credit bureaus.
