A Canton man waited since January for the IRS to mail him his $8,966 tax refund to his Milton business address. But when it never showed up, he found out from the agency that his check was cashed in Athens with a false address listed with the fraudulent endorsement on the back of the check.
The victim filed his complaint about a lost or stolen check with the IRS on May 25, and heard back from the federal agency on July 7. On July 8, he filed a report with the Milton Police Department.
Mysteriously Activated Debit Card Used in Tattoo Fraud
A Milton woman who said she never activated her debit card when she received it in June complained to Milton police that someone attempted to make a fraudulent purchase of $4,726.95 at a tattoo parlor in California.
The victim said her bank, Wells Fargo, first notified her on June 6 with a fraud alert. She suspects an old employee activated the card.
