Police Blotter – Phone hacking

  • Sunday, August 17, 2014

A woman stopped by the police sub-station the other day to report that someone used her phone number to try and scam another person.

She said her phone rang and a man on the other end said a woman had just called him from that number, using her name, asking for personal identification numbers to finance a home loan. He knew this was a scam, and did not give the information out. According to the report, he hung up quickly, but later decided to call the number back. That’s when this woman answered and learned her phone had been hacked, the report said. The folks at the cell phone store said all they could do was change her phone number. But according to the report, she had the number for so long she did not want to do that.

She decided to have police make a report in case another incident occurred using her name and number.
