A Ware County woman has been victimized by financial identity fraud, said Ware County Sheriff’s Department Lt. Neil Skerratt.
A woman who resides in the 3400 block of Brunswick Highway checked her bank statement and discovered two payments going back to June 13 made to a Capital One account not authorized by her, Skerratt said.
Apparently, the detective said, someone had used her bank information to set up the account without her consent.
Skerratt did not reveal a fiduciary amount related to the hacking crime.
She reported the fraud to the sheriff’s department, and Ware detectives are investigating, Skerratt said.
